View: Ignorance on cyber security no longer an option for boards now

Cyber threats are increasing day by day and getting more complex and constantly evolving. There’s no way to be 100% protected. That’s why cybersecurity is no longer just the responsibility of Information security departments. Boards of Directors are ultimately liable and responsible for the survival of their organizations, and in today’s interconnected world, cyber resilience is big part of that responsibility. That means that Boards must take an active role in cybersecurity.

Governing Board Activism and the Propagation Paradigm

It has been almost 30 years since Carol Lindeman (1989) argued physicians and nurses should serve equally on boards and committees. Since then, Prybell (2007, 2009, 2013) conducted several studies on the nature of nurses’ hospital governing board participation, the value nurses bring to the boardroom, and the need for more nurses on hospital and health system boards. In 2010, The Institute of Medicine (2010) also called for more nurses on boards. Fast forward to 2018, there has been far too little progress toward having more nurses (and therefore in effect more women) on governing boards, efforts undertaken by the Nurses on Boards Coalition (NOBC, 2018) notwithstanding. This is not an issue unique to hospitals and health systems, it also also permeates Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 firms; women are just as underrepresented in those boardrooms. Women’s share of new board appointments at Fortune 500 companies actually declined two percentage points in 2016 to 27.3% (Heidrick & Struggles, 2017). At this rate, it will take until 2055 before there are 50% women on corporate boards in the United States (Equilar, 2018).

The perks of the office, the collaborative leadership style, and the constant focus on maintaining positive public relations on behalf of the institution and the leadership can create a bubble of false security and pride. However, that bubble can quickly burst when fiduciary responsibility has crumbled.
