Is your board prioritising cybersecurity? Seven questions to ask

Cybersecurity may be a difficult area for organisations to address because it is constantly evolving. Threats are growing more malicious, and cybercriminals are growing more sophisticated.

As a result, cyberattacks are not just costly, they may negatively affect brand perception, customer loyalty, and overall shareholder value.

As threats proliferate, they are becoming a critical topic of conversation in boardrooms worldwide. Although boards and executive teams are aware of cybersecurity’s impact on business growth and perception, some struggle to find the right benchmarks to ensure they have the right cybersecurity strategies in place.

Nasdaq Governance Solutions has identified seven key questions for boards to consider, including:

  • Which committee is managing oversight?
  • What cybersecurity risk updates and priorities are regularly disclosed?
  • How is the board helping develop the next generation of cybersecurity leaders?

The full list of questions to ask your board when assessing your cyber risk priorities, and the answers, can be downloaded here.
