Cybersecurity and The Board’s Responsibility: What Directors Need to Know about Risk and Oversight

Cybersecurity continues to be a pressing concern for boards in virtually all corporate sectors. Cyber attacks appear in the headlines virtually every week, reminding board members of the reputational, legal, and business threats such attacks pose. Regulators expect boards to maintain effective oversight over cybersecurity and to ensure that their companies are adequately prepared to respond and recover from any attack that does happen—including making timely disclosures required by ever-expanding notification requirements. Is your board providing proper oversight over your cybersecurity program? Are you ready to handle a significant attack – along with the potential legal ramifications? The Rock Center and SVDX will host a panel of experts to discuss the current cybersecurity threat landscape, evolving regulatory developments in this area, and what boards should be doing to ensure that their companies are well protected and that their oversight responsibilities are being adequately fulfilled.
