How to get your company board to consider cyber threats as part of corporate risk and business decisions

A new advice document had been published by the UK government’s Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI).

‘Influencing company boards’is based on the experience that CPNI has gained from briefing management boards on cyber threats. It has been written because getting commitment and buy-in from the board is crucial to the successful outcome of any cyber security work.

According to CPNI if the board is not signed up to work on cyber security, if you do not have top level involvement in the issue, getting truly cyber-secure becomes a greater challenge.

The board needs to appreciate the level of threat posed by cyber risks; and it needs to consider these as part of corporate risk and business decisions.
