World Economic Forum cybersecurity guide for boards of directors

Given our role as a global leader in cyber protection, the Acronis team is often tapped for our expertise and insights. Such contributions are why Acronis is a member of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Centre for Cybersecurity – and why we were part of a working group that contributed to a new report released by the WEF that warns that cybersecurity failure is a “clear and present danger” and critical global threat.

The WEF’s new Principles for Board Governance of Cyber Risk Report notes that while cybersecurity failures are a major threat, the responses from board directors have been fragmented, risks not fully understood, and collaboration between industries limited.

Boards of directors need to play a more active role in protecting their organization from cyber risks. The new WEF report that we contributed to provides a solution to this fragmentation.
