Four cybersecurity essentials that your board of directors wants to know

The insights to help you deliver what they need

whitepaper

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

However, boards 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 whitepaper provides context for understanding what kinds of information a board needs, and why, by giving four insights based on quantifiable metrics to help you explain your current cybersecurity posture, defensibility, priorities, and ROI in ways that are most meaningful to your executive audience.
