The Corporations Act 2001 requires company directors and officers to discharge their duties with care and diligence. In its Cyber Resilience: Health Check, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has clearly articulated its position on cyber security and directors’ duties, stating:

  • it considers board participation important to promoting a strong culture of cyber resilience1
  • a failure to meet obligations to identify and manage cyber risks may, if you are a director or officer of a company, result in you being disqualified from your role.2

So where do you start?

Our ‘Six Point Cyber Security Check List’ is intended to provide a high level entry point for company directors and board members to design strategies to meet their legal obligations on cyber security.3
