Sheila Hooda quoted in Corporate Board Member on Cybersecurity

IN THE GAME of dodgeball, the objective is to avoid being hit by a ball hurled by an opponent—but at some point, the ball inevitably strikes the mark. Hackers play a far more dangerous version of this game, launching a fusillade of cyber attacks daily. The company on whose board you sit will manage to skirt many attacks but some will succeed.

Nearly every midsized company and large enterprise has been hacked at least once, with no industry spared. Accordingly, board directors must give as much of their attention to what happens after a cyber attack as they do to all of the security measures designed to ward off an incursion.
