One effective solution that can support Boards in exercising their capabilities against real cyber threats is the Immersive Labs Platform , which provides an array of interactive and hands-on cybersecurity labs and exercises, including crisis simulations. Boards can utilize the platform and its content – updated at the speed of cyber – to enhance their understanding of cyber risks, develop practical skills in incident response, and test their decision-making abilities in a realistic and controlled environment.
By leveraging the Immersive Labs Platform, Boards can ensure their directors are continuously upskilled and prepared to handle cybersecurity incidents. The platform offers a comprehensive and dynamic learning experience, allowing directors to stay updated on the latest cyber threats, learn from real-world scenarios, and practice their response strategies. This not only enhances the Board’s overall cybersecurity expertise, but also demonstrates their commitment to proactive risk management.
Building confidence against cyber risk requires boards to both appoint directors with cyber expertise and continuously exercise their capabilities against real cyber threats. The WSJ Pro team’s findings highlight the need for Boards to prioritize proving cybersecurity knowledge and skills within their ranks. By hiring directors with cybersecurity experience and utilizing platforms like Immersive Labs, Boards can enhance their ability to handle cyber incidents, mitigate risks, and instill confidence among stakeholders. In today’s rapidly evolving cyber landscape, it is crucial for boards to proactively address cybersecurity challenges and ensure organizational resilience.
