Kim Peretti, partner and co-chair of the firm’s Cybersecurity Preparedness & Response Team, was quoted in an InsideCybersecurity daily news report on October 2 titled, “Amid regulatory fears, boards improve on cybersecurity.”
A recent report from Georgia Tech Information Security Center shows an increase in boardroom involvement in cybersecurity management – 63 percent of boards are now actively addressing IT security, up from 33 percent in 2012. According to Peretti there are changing regulatory expectations of how and how much boards should be engaged, so companies are rushing to learn of these changes to avoid non-compliance.
“It’s all about the culture of security,” said Peretti. “It has to start from the top. They have to show that interest.”
