Survey Results Part Two: Directors Must Drive Cybersecurity Improvements

By NACD Staff and WSJ Pro Cybersecurity


Cybersecurity Survey

In brief: WSJ Pro, the Wall Street Journalʼs professional arm, collaborated with NACD to gather survey responses from 472 corporate board directors on the current state of the board members' cyber-risk management expertise and preparedness to deal with cyberattacks. The research provides a snapshot ahead of upcoming rule changes from the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

The research is split over two papers. This paper focuses on how directors and management oversee cybersecurity and preparedness for cyberattacks. The other paper covers the prevalence of cyber expertise on corporate boards and how those lacking expertise plan to address the gap.

Most relevant audiences: Public company directors, the full board, audit committee members, and CISOs
