The AICD CSCRC Cyber Security Governance Principles provide a framework of practical better practice guidance to assist Australian directors oversee and engage with management on cyber security risk.
In recent years, AICD members have consistently provided feedback, including via the Director Sentiment Index, that while they are alive to the significant threat that is posed to their organisations by cyber security incidents, they at times lack the tools and knowledge to engage effectively with management.
The Principles will enable directors of all sizes of organisations to ask the right questions of management, spot red flags in how cyber security risk is being managed, promote a culture of cyber security resilience and prepare and respond effectively to significant cyber security incidents.
The Principles draw on the insight of senior Australian directors, cyber security advisors and government.
For SME and NFP directors there is a checklist of practical low-cost steps to enhance cyber security resilience. The AICD and CSCRC is committed to updating the Principles as the cyber security threat and regulatory landscape evolves.
