Cybersecurity and the board
Board memebers are getting more involved in cybersecurity in 3 areas:

1. they are becoming targets. remember colin powelll's gmail account leak by wikileaks? well it included a list of Salesforce's acquisition targets that Powell's received via email being on the baord of salesforce. Corporations today communicate their utmost sensitive data with board members and in the majority of the cases it happens through a non-secure personal email account.

2. they make the decision to transfer risk to cyberinsurance along with CEOs. CISOs are very rarely involved in this decision. Boards often are.

3. Educated Board members and CEOs look at Cybersecurity as a competitive advantage in a world where attacks are common, frequent and more and more our new normal.

CISOs and CEOs and Boards
Of course, the first step is to give the CISO that direct (or, at least, less indirect) line to the CEO and the Board.  Many CISOs still report to CIOs -- but there has been a trend away from that because of the inherent conflicts of interest between the office and budget of the CIO and the office and budget of the CISO.
