Hey board directors, help your companies fight cybercrime – and yes, it matters

Boardrooms need to “wake up” to the danger of cybercrime, according to a recent report.

The UK’s ICSA, commissioned by the government’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), has issued the guidance document on how boards can better understand and cope with the threats posed to businesses by malware, hacking, cyber espionage and other digital dangers.

Now, in security circles, “ICSA” generally refers to a leading security testing and certification body, formerly known as NCSA. Or, in some specialist cases, the International Chinese Statistical Association (for some reason, founded in San Francisco and registered as a non-profit in Delaware).

But no, the ICSA we’re talking about here is the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators.
