Finally! … Cyber Security is a Boardroom Priority

Finally! … Cyber Security is a boardroom priority!

 

It is only more recently I have seen cyber security become a key priority from an agenda item for the board meetings. Humbly, I believe this is at least a decade too late. If not two decades.

 

Cyber security is now seen as a key risk by boards. I have the fortune of speaking with boards every week and I see the board concerns in this regard intensify. Boards are now demanding increased clarity and understanding in a subject matter that was once strictly a CIO/CISO concern.

 

I remember in the early days of Stickman, I was trying to drive hard the notion that cyber security must be a key board priority – this was met with insignificance. Now, owing to the changes in the landscape, what was not a major topic for the boardroom is an important board focus.

 

Is it a priority for your board or is it merely an agenda item?
