Board Security Awareness

If you don’t speak the board’s language, it’ll be nearly impossible to get them to understand – much less, approve an investment for critical infrastructure and security tools.

It’s a topic that’s becoming all too common in board meetings nowadays, with roughly four in every five board members revealing that cyber security is on every itinerary.

Cyber risk is inherently complex, especially to those who don’t directly manage a network.

Presenting a cyber security initiative to the board of directors is like walking a tightrope; you need to find a balance between technical and persuasive language, or you may not like the final result.

Aligning for Success

It's common to engage a Cyber Risk and Assurance consultant to work with executives to help them prepare their pitch, presentation or corporate communications so that it's best received by the board of directors.

If a scientific formula for successfully presenting to the board exists, these three points are fuelling the algorithm.

  • The reputational risk of a security incident
  • The financial fallout of a security incident
  • The legal liability of a security incident
