“In this piece, I provide an overall strategic cyber-roadmap for boards to take responsibility for cyber-oversight, using five case studies of cyber-risk governance based on interviews with board members who hold seats at a variety of public and non-public companies, including technology companies, Fortune 100 financial services companies, top 10 federally chartered credit union and professional associations. The case studies show examples of how boards are addressing their cyber oversight responsibilities.”

A poor risk culture may not manifest its deficiencies when times are good, but when the next crisis hits, a lacking risk culture will betray the firm when it counts. I’ve seen too many otherwise good franchises relegated to the history books because their risk culture let them down.
