Overview

Cyber security has become one of the hottest topics in today's board rooms. However, many Board of Directors don't understand cyber security, and that is something they do not like and are not used to. Learn who makes up the typical Board member, what their priorities and concerns are, and how to communicate about cyber security to them. For Board members, learn the key concepts of cyber security and the top questions you should be asking your security officers.
