                Reporting to the Board of Directors: A Toolkit for CISOs

                Explore leading practices from CISOs who have established strong board reporting relationships and review sample dashboards

                Boards oversee risk, not operations. Rather than tell them how your cybersecurity program works, show them how (or how well) the risk is being managed.

                This guide comprises leading practices of Chief Information Security Officers from all types of industries who've established effective reporting relationships with the board and the C-suite.

                You'll find steps for building a foundational relationship with your board, techniques for implementing a successful reporting process, and tips for creating a board presentation agenda that will help you establish your role as a trusted and credible business leader. The appendix contains sample cybersecurity reporting dashboards.

                Why Boards Care About Cybersecurity

                Boards have a responsibility to protect shareholder value. And now the assets on which corporate value depends are largely digital and intangible, putting them at risk from cyber threats.

                In 1975, 17% of S&P 500 firms' market value was tied to intangible assets.

                In 2015, that number was 87%.
