The meeting will be held on August 18, 2009, in New York City.

The Financial Impact of Cyber Risk: 50 Questions Every CFO Should Ask is a joint initiative to identify and respond to the current needs of the C-suite community regarding cyber risk. Phase I provided questions that organizations and chief financial officers (CFOs) should explore to identify and quantify the financial risk associated with cyber security. The final workshop framework document from Phase I is available for review at [see related news item]

Phase II will focus on developing an implementation strategy that addresses the questions provided in Phase I. Additionally, this initiative will expand that framework to include guidance on making more informed decisions related to cyber risk from an economic standpoint.
