“Cyber security has in recent years become an integral component of a boards role in risk oversight, but directors often find themselves in unfamiliar territory when it comes to formulating policies and oversight processes that address cyber security risk.
It can be especially challenging for directors to identify upcoming risks and avoid focusing too much on yesterday’s headlines.”
Harvard Law School – Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation“
The Cyber Risk Challenge:
Understanding today’s cyber threat landscape is a significant challenge, the various actors, motivations and methods now intertwined with geopolitics means board members need to understand how to “measure and manage” cyber risk as it applies to their business.
Interconnected business models relying on key suppliers and partners is a characteristic of every global entity and requires mature risk oversight and supporting processes. Regulatory compliance with significant fines and liabilities now requires organisations to “bake in” Governance, Risk Management and Compliance Management (GRC) processes as opposed to “bolt them on” as part of a cyber security function. Understanding what cyber related exposure your organisation faces is ultimately what will drive your risk management program holistically across your enterprise.
The board requires a cyber security strategy in order to meet their obligations. A bona fide cyber security strategy will be supported by a framework and related back to the inherent cyber risk of the organisation.
“As part of an enterprise risk management program, entities should evaluate the inherent cyber risk (or the risk absent any compensating controls) presented by the people, processes, technology, and underlying data that support each identified function, activity, product, and service.” G7 – ECB
