Host:Nancy May, President and CEO,BoardBench CompaniesGuest:Perry GranofShow: Part 2 of 2There’s so much more than what you might expect is need to ensure that you,a director of a Public, Private, PE/VC, family-owned, or not-for-profit firm, are properly protected, right up until the end game. In this show you’ll learn how to access indispensable resources, some simply right at your fingertips!In addition:Have you heard of the risks associated with GDPR exposures?No? Are you among those who haven’t taken any action on this front?You may be in good company as more than 50% of companies haven’t done so either.But the risks may be more than you might imagine: international penalties could be as much as 4% of your company’s annual revenues!As for Non-Profits, even having the best intentions could impact your wallet.NFP issues are often more sensitive, emotional, and personal, and the desire for some to “teach directors a lesson” could come to hit you, in more way than one, unless dealt with early on.Always be careful when the heart is not in sync with the head.On the Cyber frontier…Ignorance is no longer a defense like it might have been before!Directors are expected to be smarter, so do the work upfront that makes you so.Last in our lineup – but not least on the topic – are intellectual property, R&D assets, and trade secrets.These can protect your future profits and success, yet the door is still wide open for international intrusion, theft, and “accidental” vulnerabilities in markets where you might be less familiar.Hiccups on this front can easily catch you, leaving you with only lint in your pocket.What do you do? Where do you turn to cover both you and the companies you serve?Caught off guard and you could face criminal violation charges, prison, or maybe even a death sentence!So how do you put your mind at rest?Listen and learn as Perry and I show you what’s beneath the surface.Want more?We’ll be hosting a D&O CYA or Bust program for current, new, and prospective directors.We’ll go into some details that will let you better serve at a higher level, with more understanding, while protecting yourself too!
