A Strategic Cyber-Roadmap for the Board

To ensure proper oversight of cybersecurity issues, boards should consider either establishing a special committee of the board of directors or securing access by directors to the objective advice of a cyber-expert. That is one of the lessons learned from interviews with five corporate board members conducted by The Conference Board for the  recent Director Notes project.

The report, entitled “A Strategic Cyber-Roadmap for the Board,” also illustrates a three-phase cyber-risk governance roadmap, discusses elements of an effective dashboard to document progress, and articulates practical recommendations for directors. It is a follow-up to The Conference Board’s Emerging Practices in Cyber-Risk Governance study, published in 2015.
