Addressing cybersecurity risk is a higher priority now more than ever before.  Since cybersecurity is an entity-wide issue impacting many areas within an organization, it is important that it is “owned” by a person or group with the appropriate line-of-sight, authority, and access to the board.  Both C-suite executives and board members are more and more finding themselves in a cybersecurity risk oversight role, and as such, are increasing their involvement in management’s development, implementation, and monitoring of comprehensive, enterprise-wide cybersecurity risk management programs.
 
Given that cybersecurity is an entity-wide endeavor, and that a breach occurring in operations will cause an organization financial loss—potentially a significant one, the CFO, in particular, must find a better way to more accurately monetize the cyber risks in the enterprise.
