To tame risk, Strengthen the Board-CISO relationship

On March 11, 2020, the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) released a blog on on emerging technologies and new threats in cybersecurity.

“Today, every CEO—whether they like it or not—is a technology CEO,” said Bob Kress, an MD at Accenture Security, where he is the co-COO and global lead for quality and risk. “I can’t name a single business process that isn’t underpinned by technology or being disrupted by technology to deliver different services in a different way. As you think about your roles as board members, are you helping the C-suite identify that sweet spot of being aggressive enough in leveraging technology to re-engineer operating models while also understanding the risk associated with that and the underlying capabilities in the organization? If you get too far on either end of the spectrum, you’re putting the organization at risk.”
