Cyber security and senior decision-makers – a view from the top
Boards of directors and senior executives sit at the apex of the corporation/government departments and are ultimately accountable for the decisions made within the organisations they govern. A key challenge facing boards/senior management groups is their need to understand increasingly complex topics such as cyber security to both chart a strategy and monitor organisational performance. This project will identify how organisation-specific cyber security knowledge develops in boards/senior management groups. Specifically, the project will identify how information asymmetries develop over time, and possible interventions to reduce these asymmetries.
