Corporate Confidence

‘... instead of burying their heads and pretending their organisations are immune to scandal, boards must understand they are not only accountable for the effective running of their businesses, they’re ultimately culpable when things go wrong. They need greater visibility of what is happening at every level across their organisations and a robust means of holding senior executives to account.’

Dealing with cyber threats

‘Being resilient requires a solid cyber-security blueprint – but where should boards begin? For starters at the board level, cyber threats should be managed as an enterprise risk issue, not a technical issue. While in the short-term this will likely require some education, maybe even the appointment of a specialist, non-executive cyber director, it does not necessitate deep technical skill.’
