NACD Board Leadership Conference NACD Chapter System

Cybersecurity and the Board: Overseeing Cyber Risks in 2018

April 18, 2018
San Francisco, CA



Private Program Hosted by NACD Sponsor PwC

As the world’s top security leaders convened at the 2018 RSA Conference, PwC hosted a special corporate governance breakfast program focused on cybersecurity issues. 

As overseers of company strategy, the board of directors plays an important role in ensuring the fulfillment of their fiduciary responsibilities related to the company’s cybersecurity risk management program, and it is an increasingly critical component of their agenda. Boards need to understand what cybersecurity risks exist today and how their company plans to manage those risks and prepare to respond to them successfully. So how do corporate directors engage and leverage their top security leaders in the boardroom? Attendees heard from PwC leaders, corporate directors, and C-suite peers on their experiences in the trenches. Speakers offered guidance and information on the latest trends in cybersecurity and how chief information security officers (CISOs) and boards can have better conversations.
