Please join our panel of professionals for a timely discussion on how the new SEC disclosure rules impact the consumer industry and the opportunity moving forward.  

Under rules implemented in December, companies compromised by cyber incidents must disclose the incident’s nature, scope, timing and material impact to the SEC within four days. Companies across industries have argued that four days is not enough time to determine cyber incident materiality, but it is particularly challenging for consumer brands and retailers who must contend with large-scale exposure of consumer data and damage to brand reputation.

To navigate the new cybersecurity requirement landscape, we gathered EY leaders with knowledge of cybersecurity, risk and consumer trust to explore consumer industry-specific stress points and share strategies for maintaining consumer trust to enable growth.

Tune in to gain insight on:

  • The specific challenges consumer brands and retailers face
  • How to balance determining materiality with the need to disclose a breach’s impact on consumers
  • What leaders can do to be proactive about securing consumer trust and building risk programs
  • Strategies for brands seeking to activate consumer data while following leading practices for cybersecurity and risk
  • How to position consumer cyber leaders with stakeholders and boards
