Cybersecurity has become a critical strategic issue that boards of directors must understand and oversee.

To fully leverage digital transformation and its potential for business growth, leaders in boardrooms must possess a practical, foundational understanding of cybersecurity. Such knowledge is crucial for all business owners, including small businesses that often lack the resources to implement robust security programs or withstand cyberattacks.

Providing board directors with the necessary cybersecurity knowledge will:

  • Enhance businesses’ capacity to embark on successful digital journeys
  • Create meaningful conversations about cybersecurity among board directors, CEOs, and technical staff members
  • Provide a clear understanding of basic terms and concepts that otherwise are not well understood or have variable interpretations
  • Outline a clear explanation of the cybersecurity landscape that effectively organizes the topic, provides a coherent structure, and lays the groundwork for future learning.

The Cyber Savvy Boardroom: Essentials Explained

Cybersecurity is definitely a hot topic for boards of directors everywhere. The Cyber Savvy Boardroom is a must-read about the risks and rewards of cybersecurity.

—Ana Botín, Executive Chair, Santander Group
Ana Botín

This book should be read at least once by each Board of Directors to get a full view of cybersecurity and how organizations should be protected. On the basis of these focused explanations, all Board members can reach out to their CISO and expect to fully understand the risk in their business.

—Bernard Gavgani, Group CIO, BNP Paribas
Bernard Gavgani

Cybersecurity knowledge is now essential at the board level, especially for risk management. This book therefore is a must read. It translates a complicated topic with many nuances into easily understood concepts that help every board director feel better prepared.

—John Thompson, Partner, Lightspeed Ventures, and former Chair, Microsoft
John Thompson

Much has been written about cybersecurity. But this excellent, thoughtful and practical book puts the issues in proper perspective. A good read for any board member.
