Board directors are alert to cyber attacks
PA Consulting’s Louise Barber, cyber security expert, comments on research showing that boards and CISOs in UK companies are at odds with each other on cyber security threats in an article by Jessica Tasman-Jones in FT Agenda.
Commenting on this Louise says: “Perspectives differ because boards view cyber risks in the context of other risks, whereas CISOs are focused on their field of expertise”
Concluding: “CISOs often report to chief information officers, chief technology officers or chief risk officers. This can restrict their influence”
