Opportunity to do a fully funded Cybersecurity course – NSW initiative
Cybersecurity has seen an increasing demand for skilled workers in every industry that uses computers, networks and the Internet. Cybersecurity experts work on measures to protect the data from theft, damage or ransomware when locked. The data can cover sensitive information, personally identifiable data (PII), health information, banking or other financial details, Intellectual property and government or industry information.
If you are working in a small or large business, personal and professional cyber security is now considered a must-have skill. A proposed SEC rule will require companies to disclose their cybersecurity governance capabilities, including the board’s oversight of cyber risk, a description of management’s role in assessing and managing cyber risks, the relevant expertise of such management, and management’s role in implementing the company’s cybersecurity policies, procedures, and strategies. Meeting the new regulatory requirements can be better achieved by aligning how operational leaders discuss cybersecurity with their boards.
Specifically, where pertinent to board oversight, registrants will be required to disclose:
- whether the entire board, a specific board member, or a board committee is responsible for the oversight of cyber risks,
- the processes by which the board is informed about cyber risks, and the frequency of its discussions on this topic,
- whether and how the board or specified board committee considers cyber risks as part of its business strategy, risk management, and financial oversight.
