Dr. Pamela Drew

Senior Aerospace and Defense Executive


Cybersecurity breaches are coming with such frequency and hold such potential negative economic impact that it behooves members of corporate boards to prepare themselves and their enterprises to respond sufficiently to cyber threats.

According to the Hiscox Cyber Readiness Report 2017, which surveyed 3000 companies in three countries, cybercrime cost the global economy over $450 billion in 2016. Yet, according to the National Association of Corporate Directors, only 59% of directors surveyed are even slightly confident that their company is sufficiently prepared to respond appropriately in case of a cyber event.

In this GCA Studio channel, Dr. Pam Drew will host a series of interviews which explore various perspectives on cybersecurity oversight in the role of corporate governance. The conversations will include the types of issues a board of directors should be focused on prior to an event, steps and approaches to take during an incident, and ways to ensure the enterprise has a full recovery. Dr. Drew’s guests will include business leaders who are experienced and influential in the domain of cybersecurity as a corporate director, as an industry sector thought leader or as a national leader in the public sector. The series is designed to provide insights of breadth and depth to enhance the working cyber knowledge of senior executives and directors dealing with cybersecurity risk today.
