Event Details

Corporate governance and cyber risk are becoming increasingly intertwined as the world becomes more digitised. In response to this, DSIT has published a call for views on a proposed Cyber Governance Code of Practice which seeks to inform directors, non-executive directors, and senior leaders about the actions they need to take to ensure their organisations are resilient to threats.

DSIT is inviting stakeholders from across the economy and society to provide feedback on the proposed Code, to understand if the cyber risks are presented and explained in a way that is straightforward and can be implemented.

The scope of the call for views is focused around three particular issues:

  • the design of the cyber governance Code of Practice;
  • how the UK government can drive uptake of its use and compliance with the code; and
  • the merits and demand for an assurance process against the Code.

He is part of the Cyber Resilience team that improves resilience to cyber risks across the UK economy. Jack leads work on embedding cyber into existing corporate governance and business regulations and driving senior leaders to govern cyber risk more effectively.
