Digital technology has become a pivotal part of day-to-day functioning for most UK organisations.
Having strong cybersecurity protects that ability to function, and allows organisations to focus on the opportunities that technology brings. Cybersecurity is at the core of an organisation’s health and resilience, and is therefore firmly within the responsibility of the Board.
The impact that cyber attacks can have on brand reputation due to the high profile media attention as well as new regulations (such as GDPR) , have raised the expectations of key stakeholders and the wider public. Put candidly, cybersecurity is something that cannot be ignored by organisations and their boards.
This 9-step toolkit is based on the latest guidance from The NCSC and helps board members to reflect and understand how their roles impact the wider security posture.
