  1. You say “When it comes to information governance and protecting the company from hackers and cyber-intruders who can harm the company, corporate leaders inevitably turn to their information technology specialists.”

    Perhaps the answer is that Corporate Leadership needs to embrace and include information technology specialists?

    As a board director I have never had any issue with the company taking its Cyber Risks seriously – because I was also the IT leader I simply ensured that it happened and my board colleagues understood and agreed. All companies of any substance are now utterly dependent on information technology, so I think it’s fair to suggest that any board which does not include an information technologist is inadequate for the purpose of providing governance and direction to the enterprise – the cyber-risk dimension is merely a red herring symptomatic of the undelying inadequacy of board understanding of IT.
