Board Governance Best Practices | Episode Summary
It makes sense that certain industries might get more attention with respect to the sensitivity of their data or their cyber risk impact on national security. Cathy Allen and host TK Kerstetter discuss the role of a Security Committee on the board. Due to Allen’s lengthy technology background, she is asked (1) whether other board members are looking to her for guidance, and (2) how she gains comfort as the “IT expert” in knowing that the company has the right people and resources in place?
This show also discusses Allen’s experiences and views on an IT crisis management plan and board evaluations.
