We live in an advanced digital society, in which technological developments are evolving rapidly – with powerful networks, increasing interconnectedness, and highly automated concepts such as e-health, smart cities, and the Fourth Industrial Revolution playing increasingly prominent roles.
This rise of such technologies means that cybersecurity is an extremely important and growing precondition for a successfully functioning society.
Our new digital reality requires business leaders to adequately assess and govern cyber risk and executive decision-makers are needed, to have a strong understanding of cyber risk concepts and issues in order to take effective action.
However, both the dynamic nature of cyber risk and exponential growth in cyber attacks can introduce challenges in decision-making.
To that end, the World Economic Forum and its partners, in collaboration with the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), Internet Security Alliance (ISA) and PwC, have published six Principles for Board Governance of Cyber Risk to enable organizations to better manage and understand how to navigate cyber risk-related strategic and operational choices.
A key principle in this guidance is that boards of directors must “align cyber risk management with business needs” across every facet of decision-making, including innovation, mergers and acquisitions, product development and more.
