Cyberattacks can cost an organisation its reputation, its customers and a great deal of money, making CEOs and board members more accountable. Yet, research shows that a high percentage of corporate boards are not actively involved in cybersecurity oversight. Nonetheless, Gartner estimates by 2021, 100% of large enterprises will be asked to report to their board of directors on cybersecurity and technology risk at least annually.
When communicating your cybersecurity program to the board, it is important to translate technical, tactical details about cybersecurity into business terms: risks, opportunities and strategic implications.In order to justify the desired cybersecurity expense, you must clearly present the risks, the plan you will implement to protect the company’s assets, and the rationale behind the cost. In this webinar, our expert panel will discuss how to present cybersecurity to the board and get buy-in, including how to:
- Map out your cybersecurity program.
- Get an independent view of your current cybersecurity state and present the facts.
- Translate technical, tactical details about cybersecurity into business terms: risks, opportunities and strategic implications.
- Propose concrete solutions and demonstrate ROI.
