An approach to cyber security in the boardroom

Connecting the dots

The process for closing that gap should not be a mystery. Taking a proactive
approach to improving cyber security governance - the dots between IT and the business, and providing the board with the information it needs - can help
position the company and the board to more selectively address the evolving
threat and implications of a major cyber security breach.

The report covers:

  • What is at stake?
  • Action steps for implementing a cyber security governance plan
  • Closing the loop with these three key questions
  • KPMG's Global Cyber Maturity Framework: Six Domains
  • A case study covering a well-defined process for board oversight of cyber security.
