This book is designed as a guide for directors.
The topics in IT, cybersecurity and governance that it discusses are applicable across all sectors including private companies, publicly listed companies, not-for-profit organisations and government. Directors increasingly find themselves in a position where Information Technology (IT) is underpinning a digital transformation of their organisation or rapidly becoming a key driver of their business.
Yet, for many years, IT and cybersecurity were thought about (if at all) by directors as part of the backroom operation of their organisation. In many cases they were regarded as drivers of operational excellence with little strategic impact. As a result, directors were often content to leave consideration of these matters to their management team.
All of this has now changed and this guide, jointly authored by Nicholas and Alexander Tate aims to equip directors with the necessary information to establish effective board level governance of IT and Cybersecurity for their organisation.
