The role executive boards play in organisational cybersecurity

23/02/2024 | NCSC

A new video released by the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) highlights the role that boardrooms play in managing cyber-risk. The NCSC has also announced that it will be publishing a dedicated training pack for board members called the Cyber Governance Training Pack for Boards. The pack aims to provide practical guidance and knowledge to help decision-makers understand cybersecurity governance. Boards carry the legal responsibility and accountability for cyber-governance within their organisation, and the pack complements a new Cyber Governance Code of Practice proposed by the Department of Science, Technology and Innovation (DSIT) in January. The code highlights several areas that boards should focus on to enhance their cybersecurity governance practices. These include risk management, cyber strategy, people, incident planning and response, along with Assurance and oversight. A consultation on the new code is open until 19 March.
