A Treasury official has recommended that CEOs and corporate boards ask ten key questions about their companies’ cybersecurity safeguards and response procedures in order to minimize the risk of intrusions, which have recently affected a number of financial institutions such as JP Morgan Chase & Co. and TD Bank.  At a conference of top bank executives, Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Sarah Bloom Raskin emphasized the importance of establishing baseline protections such as purchasing cyber insurance and screening third-party service providers, sharing information with other groups in the industry, and developing a “playbook” for responding to and recovering from an attack.  The ten questions, which are discussed in further detail in her remarks, provide a useful guide for executives as they focus their attention on cyber risk management.
