Given the rising cost of a data breach and the immense risk posed to the business by a security breach, members of the Board of Directors have come to realize the need for greater visibility as well as the importance of their oversight in driving the overall security culture of an organization. Boards are increasingly becoming acutely aware of this with almost 50% of Fortune 500 boards having cybersecurity as a strategic goal. To be successful, the board needs to have an accurate and meaningful understanding of the on-the-ground performance of security efforts measured against defined objectives. This means that the board and Security/IT teams need to come to a shared understanding of risk appetite and a means by which to establish and track key metrics to clearly communicate how the operational performance of security impacts risk, compliance, and return on investment.
