With cyber risk viewed as a clear and present danger, board members need to know their company’s risks in order to steer the organisation to its most secure course. But it’s not always easy.

Historically, cybersecurity has been an area reserved for technologists working in distant server rooms. Cyber risk has become a risk for business that affects every aspect of a company particularly in the wake of recent huge security breaches, such as those at Colonial Pipeline and Equifax.

Boards are now demanding more of their CISOs, as well as their security teams. Whether it’s increasing spending on new technologies or ensuring that staff receive proper training Board members require an understanding of how a properly-trained security team can protect itself from the most sophisticated threats. This message must be conveyed in a manner that is easily understood by non-technical executives in the boardroom.

A good way to do this is to integrate security goals with business objectives and use real-time metrics. You can provide the board with the information it requires to make a decision by providing regular reports that show the evolution of security measures, a decrease in risk index and other key metrics. Make a compelling story instead of just passing along numbers. You can show your board members how their quick actions prevented a major danger by sharing a real live example.
