Cybersecurity Beyond Traditional Risk Management

At a recent CIO panel, an audience member asked the three of us on stage: "What do you see as your number one priority in the coming 12 months?" I responded "cybersecurity" without hesitation. The panelist that followed said that cybersecurity was a priority, but that it is a subset of risk management. This was not the first time I have heard the chief information pro and/or technologist in a large company make that point, and I have to respectfully disagree.
