In today’s complex risk environment, knowledge of cybersecurity issues is an increasingly important component of a Board of Directors' organizational leadership.  

While the threat of a cyber attack can sometimes feel like a purely technical problem with purely technical solutions, the reality is that an organization’s Board of Directors can and should have an active role in planning for attacks, as well as in responding in the unfortunate event an attack occurs.    

In this thirty to sixty (30-60) minute presentation, Polsinelli's expert incident response attorneys draw from  practical experience to lead a conversation that begins with an overview of cyberthreat trends that are relevant to your industry and then turns to a non-technical, leadership-focused discussion of issues pertaining to organizational governance, including recent SEC rules and court decisions bearing on the same, including

  • the board's role in preparing for a data security incident
  • the board's role in the critical first hours and days after discovery, and after an incident has resolved
  • fiduciary duties to shareholders related to data security
  • relevant SEC disclosures

Recommended attendees: Members of the insured's board; can also encompass a wider leadership team
