Cyber Security and the Boardroom

 


Boards of directors must not only devote more attention to cyber risks, but also evaluate their organizations' readiness for an attack.

Board members, directors, and officers may be falling short on their duty to review their organization's risk practices, to include network breaches and failures in their business continuity planning and insurance coverages, and to disclose material cyber risks and incidents to stakeholders.
