Board information security has become a top board governance priority as cybersecurity risk grows. With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, boards are now looking for solutions that will allow them to share and collaborate on board materials, all from one secure and centralized location.
Many boards use board portal software to protect their information from cyberattacks and provide tools for board directors to have discussions and participate in in-person and virtual board meetings. However, even boards with board meeting software in place are advised to re-assess the security of their board portal every few years.
As you evaluate your board information management system, make sure to ask your provider the following questions from our board portal security checklist to see how it measures up.
The challenge with security is the complexity of board communication. When choosing board collaboration tools, you need to consider the end-to-end activities of board members, as they access, review, and communicate.
It may seem like a lot of information to consider, but cybersecurity is priceless in the long run. Consider these three additional security-focused features to help keep your data safe:
Data breaches are unnerving to everyone, and with many of us now working remotely, we need to be even more aware of data security. The best means of protection is to be practical, proactive, and selective in choosing our vendor partners, as well as mindful in how we build our internal systems.
Ask yourself, does our solution conform to the highest industry standards for data encryption and security controls? Does it provide two-factor authentication and remote locking and data wiping if a device is lost or stolen?
The Aprio board portal offers these protections and a choice of international locations for secure data storage. In addition, Aprio considers how to protect board members from cybersecurity risk as they work, balancing convenient, mobile access to board meeting materials with the most robust technical methods to continuously protect your organization’s data.
