The CISO & the Board Level Briefing

Sybil Moser introduces her upcoming multi-part article series on the provision of board-level briefings by Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs).

CISOs have a responsibility to ensure that the Board is fully briefed on the risks that the data and information in the company is exposed to. In practice, a CISO s explanation to the Board tend to contain a lot of technical information usually designed for experts. The aim of this article series is to consider a method of visualisation for Board briefings from CISO to Board members, which will enable better communication and allow a better strategic forecasting and planning of emerging cyber threats.

The article follows a method design of qualitative research using a review of the existing literature, followed by interviews. The interviews of CISOs in charge of critical infrastructures, cyber security consultants and academic researchers allowed for an analysis of the qualitative data and to test the theoretical concepts drawn from literature.
