5 Steps to Help Your Board of Directors Understand the Changing Nature of Data Security
CISOs and security leaders need to be included in the board of directors’ data risk conversations in order to communicate that all data—not just information governed by regulations—matters when it comes to security. By taking a broader approach to data protection, they can help the company grow and also reduce risks. This infographic covers five easy steps to start the communication process with your board of directors.
When board of directors think of data risk exclusively as an issue of regulated data, they tend to treat all data risk situations as requiring the same risk mitigation measures. As a result, CISOs tend to experience a complacent board that is unwilling to invest beyond traditional prevention and anti-malware when addressing data risk.
Board of directors might not be looking into security issues often enough. A 2019 report by consulting firm Deloitte said 49% of C-level executives surveyed have cyber security issues on their board’s agenda once per quarter, 31% have security issues on agenda twice per year, and 15% once per year.
