Do CISOs Need to 'Dumb Down' Cybersecurity for Boards?
CISOs are encouraged to bring boards of directors into the 21st century on cyber matters.

Experts speaking out on how boards of directors and CISOs must do a better job in strengthening board involvement on cybersecurity matters leads the latest edition of the ISMG Security Report.

In the Security Report, you'll hear (click on player to listen):

  • McDonald's CISO Tim Youngblood, former RSA Executive Chairman Art Coviello and onetime U.S. CISO Gregory Touhill urge security leaders to improve communications on cybersecurity challenges with boards of directors;
  • ISMG Security and Technology Editor Jeremy Kirk update the case against IoT maker D-Link on sloppy security practices; and
  • Reformed fraudster Frank Abagnale of "Catch Me if You Can" fame - now a fraud and cybersecurity adviser - opine on the fallout from the Equifax breach.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Tuesdays and Fridays. Check out our Sept. 19 and Sept. 22 editions, which respectively analyze whether chief information security officers should have academic degrees in IT or IT security and the impact of a breach of computers at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
