The Cyber Readiness for Boards project seeks to investigate how corporate boards assess cyber risk and make decisions about investments in cyber security.
About the project
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. Cyber Readiness for Boards (CR4B) is a two-year project funded by the National Cyber Security Centre and Lloyds Register Foundation.
