WASHINGTON, D.C. (Jan. 16, 2018) – The National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), the authority on boardroom practices representing more than 18,000 board members, today announced the corporate directors and senior executives who earned the CERT Certificate in Cybersecurity Oversight during the second half of 2017.

The certificate holders earned this unique credential by completing the NACD Cyber-Risk Oversight Program, the world’s first-ever online cyber-risk course for corporate leaders. The robust, multimodule program improves corporate directors’ understanding of cybersecurity risks, details the respective responsibilities of the board and C-suite executives in cyber-risk oversight, and engages participants in a cyber-crisis simulation. The course culminates in a comprehensive exam.

“Now, more than ever, it is of paramount importance that those of us who bear the responsibility for corporate oversight are properly equipped to ask the right questions related to cybersecurity,” said Peter Gleason, NACD president and CEO. “This credential is a tangible testament to these leaders’ commitment to advanced cyberliteracy.”
