For most organizations today, cybersecurity is becoming much more than just a budget discussion. Amid the rising number of attacks, it is now clear that adequate cybersecurity lies at the foundation of any successful business. And this trend will only continue, especially if the U.S. government approves the Security and Exchange Commission’s proposed regulations that would require publicly-traded companies to publicly disclose attacks of any material nature within four business days as well as file details on their general cybersecurity posture.
As cybersecurity plays a growing role in business strategy, corporate board members’ interest in and knowledge of the subject is increasing. They are increasingly interested in what the CISO has to say.
