A cybersecurity breach can be devastating to a business. It is therefore important that board members prioritise cybersecurity and take it seriously.
Cyberattacks, data breaches, and ransomware are increasing rapidly in frequency and cost. This makes them an important corporate governance issue that affects every business and organisation. In a recent report, directors identified cybersecurity as one of their top risks.
The problem is usually that the management of a company including its board isn’t aware of how to reduce security risks and safeguard sensitive information. This is the result of a gap between the executive and the IT specialists.
This is why it’s crucial to ensure that the boardroom is provided with secure ways to receive crucial information. LBMC offers a variety of products to ensure that the information discussed in a boardroom remains there. For instance, RF windows films can help prevent eavesdropping as well as electronic data theft in conference rooms. Our privacy window films make a great choice for offices and other workplaces.
When presenting their ideas to the boardroom about cybersecurity, CISOs need to employ language that is easily understood by the board as well as the management team. They must be able clearly describe the severity of the risk and demonstrate how they can prioritize the investment needed to minimize that risk. They should avoid “geekspeak” instead, they should provide an approach based on risk to cybersecurity. This quantification methodology provides the management team and board with a framework to make informed strategic decisions.
