Nasdaq Corporate Solutions Q&A Video: How Corporate Boards Tackle Cybersecurity. Featuring Gov. Tom Ridge, NACD and Nasdaq.

Nasdaq Corporate Solutions convened a panel of experts to discuss how corporate boards tackle cybersecurity. Featured guests were Governor Tom Ridge, Chairman at Ridge Global and former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security; Peter Gleason, CEO of National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD); and David Strandberg, Chief Counsel at Nasdaq. Ben Maiden, Editor at Corporate Secretary, moderated the discussion.

Key highlights include:

  • Corporate board level awareness and understanding of cyber risk is still a challenge; NACD data indicates 19% of corporate directors feel confident on cyber issues.
  • The scope of cyber risks has also evolved. It is critical that management teams and corporate boards are updated on how various risks have changed and what technologies and processes are being implemented.
  • Directors should ensure that technology has a formal role at the board level: Chief Information Security Officers (CISO) and CIOs should update management and the board on a frequent basis.
  • Boards should maintain the dialogue across the entire workforce to raise the level of confidence.
  • Routinely audit internal and external risks: monitor where board-level data is stored, how it is secured and who has access.
