Corporate directors focusing on cybersecurity: Data breaches, rising costs brings cyber safeguards into the spotlight
As high profile data breaches continue to grab headlines, corporate boards need to make sure they’re deeply involved in the cybersafeguards at their companies.
“They have to accept responsibility,” said David Finn, a former federal prosecutor who spent 16 years leading Microsoft’s efforts to fight cybercrime, counterfeiting and fraud. “It’s not just a server room issue. It’s a board room issue.”
A group of national cybersecurity experts will discuss cyberthreats next week at the Corporate Directors Forum at Qualcomm’s headquarters at 5775 Morehouse Drive. The San Diego non-profit helps corporate board members with training and networking.
