Per the Singapore government’s current encouragement, boards of companies, especially public-listed ones, should have a director who is reasonably knowledgeable about cybersecurity (though not necessarily needing a CISSP level). This has inspired some senior members of our community to aspire to be appointed as cyber board members. However, before we head to Savile Row, let’s take a nutshell view of a board director’s duties and expectations, and what they can do to help the company’s cyber posture.
