9.30am | Cyber readiness of boards with guidance for grappling with the complexities of managing cyber risk

Madeline Carr, Director of the Research Institute in Sociotechnical Cyber Security (RICSC) and Principle Investigator of CR4B: Cyber Readiness for Boards.  Madeline is also a Professor of Global Politics and Cyber Security at University College London.

The role of boards in contributing to a broader agenda of national cyber security is well established. Cyber security is a Tier 1 threat to the UK. With 83% of UK critical infrastructure in private hands and the largest digital economy of the G20, boards of private sector organisations have been identified as critical to enhancing cyber security and resilience. As we move into more complex technological ecosystems, the relevance of cyber risk assessment is expected to increase in scale and in scope.

The CR4B project seeks to investigate how corporate boards assess cyber risk and make decisions about investments in cyber security. The aim of this project is to extend existing research on board responses to cyber in order to identify, understand, and account for broader internal and external decision-making factors. Madeline will provide insight into the findings of Cyber Readiness for Boards (CR4B), a two-year project funded by the National Cyber Security Centre and Lloyds Register Foundation.

This has included the design, deployment and operation of cyber security technologies, business continuity planning, and governance to ensure technical and administrative security controls work as intended.

Dee will discuss how Slaughter & May dealt with the heightened risks of working remotely, ensuring business continuity, modifying information security and privacy training programmes as well as processing ever-increasing volumes of personal information.
