Cybersecurity for Company Directors

When it comes to cyber security, a perfect storm is brewing as the threat landscape continues to evolve faster than ever, fuelled by innovation, automation and the drive to the cloud. This is compounded by a cyber skill shortage and the growing reputational, financial and legal implications of a cyber breach for company directors and executives.
