Qualified Risk Director (QRD®): Cybersecurity Oversight in the Boardroom
Cyber attacks and data leakage are daily threats to organisations globally, reminding us that we are all potential targets of this type of threat. Attorneys are discussing the potential risk of individual liability for corporate directors who do not take appropriate responsibility for oversight of cybersecurity. Investors and regulators are increasingly challenging boards to step up their oversight of cybersecurity and calling for greater transparency around major breaches and the impact they have on the business. This has galvanised corporate boards who have woken up to the call that they must address cybersecurity issues on their front lines, as it is not just an Information Technology (IT) issue. In fact, cyber risks are an enterprise-wide risk management issue. Given this environment, it is not surprising that cyber risk is now near the top of Board, Board Risk Management and Board Audit committee agendas. This program guides Directors on how to ask the right questions, what the key considerations are, how they can be more effective in managing cybersecurity risk, as well as how to close the loop in their information flow – to allow for continuous synchronization and integration as the board wants to remain agile and responsive to the evolving and changing cyber threat landscape.
