Cybersecurity and Corporate Governance - Critical Questions for Public Companies

October 6, 2020 Shareworks Marketing

Cybersecurity breaches not only disrupt business operations, damage reputations and carry heavy costs, they also increasingly trigger SEC investigations. The security of your employees, customers and corporate data is critical to maintaining trust. As cyber threats intensify, it’s important to understand that cybersecurity is not the sole responsibility of the IT department. It requires a coordinated approach that includes proper safeguards, training and employee participation.

Our whitepaper was done in partnership with three leading experts in corporate governance—Stephen T. Giove, partner at Shearman & Sterling, Michael L. Andresino, partner at Arent Fox LLP, and Thomas S. Brennan, also a partner at Arent Fox LLP—to help provide guidelines for oversight, policies, procedures, disclosure controls and action steps to improve your approach to cybersecurity.

In addition, Rachel Wilson, head of Cybersecurity for Wealth Management at Morgan Stanley and former senior executive at the National Security Agency (NSA), shares 7 steps you can take to build a coordinated approach to help protect your company.
