Cyber Security Board Member and Cyber Security Advisor

Steinberg also advises management vis-à-vis what cybersecurity technology can and cannot reasonably achieve in terms of addressing pertinent risks, and, when serving as an advisor to senior management, provides executives with an impartial, trusted, and expert opinion on current and planned cybersecurity initiatives, as well as regarding organizational cybersecurity posture and maturity, such as helping executives better prepare their organizations to address a potential future cyber incident. As a cyber security board member and a cyber security advisor, Steinberg also helps leadership craft cybersecurity policies, and helps management communicate such policies and other cyber-security related matters to their teams in a clear, concise, and simple-to-understand fashion.
