  • Discuss what “material” incidents mean to your org & practice disclosures
  • Educate executives on the changes & what they mean for the business
  • Review board oversight structure & responsibilities on cyber matters
  • Hold tabletops to educate the management team & the board to prepare for cyber incidents
  • Use analytics to better understand the financial implications of your organization’s cyber risk exposure
  • Retain third-party auditors to assess your program
