Cybersecurity, Audit and the Board: How does board oversight impact cybersecurity performance?

Diligent Institute and Bitsight analyzed 4149 companies on mid to large cap indices around the world to understand their board oversight of cyber risk.

Key findings:

  • Companies with advanced cybersecurity ratings create nearly 4X shareholder value
  • Only 5% of companies have cybersecurity experts on their boards
  • 33% of companies with advanced security performance come from the financial sector

Our analysis consists of publicly traded large to mid cap indices across Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. Leveraging board data sourced from Diligent Market Intelligence in late November 2023, we examined the board structures and directors skillset backgrounds of these companies. The data was then correlated with security rating data obtained from Bitsight between December 2023 and February 2024.
