Event description

Description

This workshop is aimed at both academic researchers interested in the call and practitioners who are the target audience for the research output. The workshop will lead directly to a Call for research proposals to be issued by the NCSC in the autumn.”


"Supporting the board: Business Risk, Cyber Risk and Decision making

Cyber risk is increasingly a topic of concern at board level, with many high profile incidents in the press and Board members losing their positions in some cases. Anecdotal evidence suggests however that both board members and those who report to them can be frustrated with the dialogue. Boards can lack expertise in cybersecurity, which exacerbates the tendency towards an audit-based approach - audit being a necessary part of the discussion but not sufficient in itself to produce the best security and business outcome. There is a real need to move towards a more nuanced dialogue, for more effective decisions to be made about cyber risk in the context of broader business risks.

This workshop will examine how boards can better be supported to effectively manage cyber risk. What information do board members really want? What information do security staff feel they should be reporting? What sort of dialogue would work well for both sides? Can we develop better, more meaningful, security metrics which would support this communication? What other measures would support more effective decision making at this level?
