40% of councils will have a cybersecurity committee by 2025


By 2025, nearly 40% of corporate boards of directors will have a committee dedicated to cybersecurity and overseen by a qualified board member (CISO, for example), compared to less than 10% existing today, says the survey “Gartner 2020 Board of Directors Survey ”, by Gartner.

This is one of several organizational changes that Gartner expects at the board, management and security team levels, in response to the heightened risk caused by the expansion of organizations’ “digital footprint” since the beginning of the pandemic. Cyber ​​risk is now ranked second for the company, right after the risk of regulatory compliance. Despite this, few directors say they feel confident that their company is adequately protected from attack.

Although CISOs are likely to experience more questions as a result of increased risk, they should also receive more support and resources, according to the survey. “CISOs should expect executive conversations to shift from discussions about performance and health to exercises geared to risks and values.”

Gartner also predicts that by 2024 60% of CISOs will establish critical partnerships with key sales, finance and marketing executives, up from less than 20% today.
