Four Cyber Security Essentials Your Board Wants to Know

Jul 08, 2019

Explaining your organization's security strategy and controls to a nontechnical audience can be challenging. Aligning that strategy against ever-changing threats and cyberattack techniques is even more challenging. Translating the strategy, threat landscape, and daily impact into meaningful risk metrics has traditionally been nearly impossible.

Yet, executive teams and boards of directors are asking for exactly that. They increasingly demand data that describes the potential impact of a security threat to operations, brand reputation, market position-even stock value. This document provides a context for understanding what kinds of information a board needs, and why. It will give you four insights based on quantifiable metrics to help you explain your current cybersecurity posture, defensibility, priorities, and performance in ways that are most meaningful to your executive audience.
