Emerging Practices in Cyber Risk Governance (CEO Strategic Implications)

October 2015 | Publication

This report examines cyber security breaches at Target, Sony, JP Morgan, and Anthem and their implications for better cyber risk governance. At best-practice companies, cyber risk has expanded from IT to a multifunctional approach or a stand-alone business function reporting directly to the CEO and board. Cyber risk governance is complete when a company has the board engaged, the CEO and C-suite deployed, and the right balance of technological and cyber expertise in management ranks. A cross-disciplinary approach is the wave of the future to address this ever-evolving threat.
