NCSC, the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre, has launched new resources as part of its Cyber Security Board Toolkit, to ‘help encourage senior leaders to have essential discussions about cyber security with their organizations’ technical experts and key stakeholders’.
The toolkit emphasises that board members should treat cyber risks with the same prominence as financial or legal risks, which have been the more traditional focus of company boards. It is designed to help board members, CEOs, and senior leaders make informed decisions about cyber risks and adopt a systematic and practical attitude towards cyber security within their organization.
The updated toolkit now includes the benefits of cyber security, essential activities for the organization, and indicators of success. It features a range of new content, including bite-sized videos summarising key concepts, an executive summary, and a podcast with contributions from industry-leading voices.
