The annual Consumer Electronics Show shifted from geek heaven to a decidedly more serious tone this year as entire Boards of Directors from companies around the country descend on the Strip to learn about cybersecurity, hacking and more. Hopefully, in breaking from Sin City’s popular tag line, what happens in Vegas will protect a myriad of companies back home.
What happens in Vegas?
The Wall Street Journal reported this week that corporate Board members were taking field trips to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas to learn more about cybersecurity. Coordinated by the National Association of Corporate Directors, members are being treated to specialized programs on technology ranging from a couple of hours to a couple of days. Though not the kind of party Sin City normally sees, it nonetheless suggests this is a perfect time for CISO’s and other security professionals to get more familiar with their Boards.
