Board Readiness for Cyber Attack this Afternoon

Cyber security is a hot topic in Bangladesh today, but around 2005, when I started working, it was not important. But after the recent Bangladesh Bank hacking incident, on board members have become conscious. In a financial institution, board members usually come from different backgrounds and it becomes difficult to give the ownership of cyber security to non-technical people. It is important of have a board member who will understand the importance of information security. Today the board members in my organisation are more conscious and prepared to take the shock of possible hacking.
