DDN 601 Workshop: Cybersecurity Incident Materiality Determination
27 May 2024
Sale Ended


The DDN 601 masterclass and workshop is for CISO's, CIO's, corporate directors, executive teams and disclosure committees of U.S. public companies who want to understand how to adopt and apply the new SEC cybersecurity incident disclosure rules. 

If you are attending DOMINO 24 on May 15-16, a shorter version of this masterclass will be taught during one of the deep dive learning classes. 

The final SEC rules require a description of the registrant's "processes, if any, for assessing, identifying, and managing material risks from cybersecurity threats in sufficient detail for a reasonable investor to understand those processes."

DDN 601 teaches that process, including how to fulfill that disclosure requirement.  


"Brilliant framework from Bob Zukis and the DDN team." 

—Ed Magee, Corporate Director (NASDAQ:WDFC)

"Walking through the case studies alone was worth the price of admission."

—Rock Lambros, CEO RockCyber
