Cyber Risk Webinar Series: Getting inside the mind of the Board

Date: Thursday, April 23, 2020
Time: 3pm-4pm BST
Location: Online webinar


In today’s uncertain and volatile world, organisational leaders are under pressure to confidently assess and manage risk and secure their organisations against cyber threats. But how well prepared are boards to achieve this? Unlike other board governance processes that are more mature, boards don’t always feel fully informed about their true cyber risk profiles or equipped to make the right decisions in line with their governance responsibilities.

This is partly due to the lack of accurate, timely (and by implication automated) information that communicates risk at a level which resonates with the board. Unlike audit committees and internal audit functions, for example, there is currently no principal-based guidance for board risk committees or for the second line of defence.

In this second part of the Cyber Risk Series, we continue our discussion of the current state of cyber risk, but from the viewpoint of the board. We will discuss its role in risk management, and what the CISO and IT leaders can do to overcome the lack of risk management oversight.

During this 60-minute webinar, you’ll learn:

  • A framework to help you present a cyber security strategy to the board
  • Best practices on communicating what matters when it matters
  • How to use your presentation as an opportunity to request resources


This webinar is the second in a three-part series, combining three online webinars and finishing the series with a physical event (date TBC), providing actionable insights and networking opportunities.

We encourage interaction, as any questions and participant insights will be incorporated into our agenda and talking points. If you have any questions you’d like answered, please let us know at
