The State of Security in the Boardroom

In today’s evolving cyber risk landscape, Boards of Directors are becoming increasingly concerned about their company’s security performance. In fact, the NACD has found that 89% of public companies and 72% of private companies regularly discuss security at Board meetings. While they are asking for updates on enterprise cybersecurity posture more often, they do not necessarily have the expertise or experience to know what to ask for — or how to interpret the technical information presented to them.

This disconnect between business leaders and security and risk leaders is a pervasive problem in the boardroom. Organizations around the world have begun to solve this issue by leveraging metrics — like security ratings — that provide a common language that both teams can easily understand.

BitSight Security Ratings helps organizations quantify their cyber risk, assess their security posture, benchmark their performance against their industry peers, and report on cyber risk to their board.
