About
RE: Cyber is an initiative dedicated to CEO and Board Cybersecurity Risk Management. RE: Cyber is a collaboration of National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and Business Executives for National Security (BENS).
Cyber Threat Trends
Cyber risk is like any other major corporate risk; it must be managed from the top. With the frequency and severity of cybersecurity incidents involving business on the rise, it is an especially critical time for CEOs and Boards to focus on understanding and managing cyber risk.
Getting Started
CEOs need to address cyber risk in existing risk management processes and governance processes.
Board Oversight
As with the oversight of other major corporate risks, such as financial risk, the Board must be informed on the company’s cyber risk and proactively oversee the company’s management of cyber risk.
Cyber Risk Assessment and Management
Proper Cybersecurity Risk Management is more than a technology solution. A company, led by its CEO, must integrate cyber risk management into day-to-day operations.
Cybersecurity Maturity Model
The RE: Cyber Initiative recognizes that in order to meaningfully engage Boards and CEOs in effectively managing cybersecurity risks, CEOS and Boards must have the tools to assess the danger to their corporations and to implement a program to counter cybersecurity risks.
Cyber Regulation, Legislation and Policy
As a CEO or Board member, you should understand how cyber policy and regulation could affect your business. This section provides overview information about the Executive Order on Cybersecurity, proposed cybersecurity regulation, and SEC cybersecurity disclosure guidance.
Creating A Culture of Awareness
The best security technology in the world cannot help you unless employees understand their roles and responsibilities in safeguarding sensitive data and protecting company resources.
