Henley academics collaborate with cyber security experts

Academics from the ICMA Centre, Henley Business School are working with industry experts on the Cyber Readiness for Boards Project, to combat cyber threats for global companies.

Dr Tony Moore, Lecturer in Finance and Dr Andreas Hoepner, Visiting Professor at the ICMA Centre are collaborating with researchers from UCL and Coventry University. They are joined by the project sponsors which includes the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and Lloyd’s Register Foundation.

The project examines the influences on UK board decisions relating to cyber threats and develops interventions to provide guidance and support. The project will initially work with six multinational companies who are at particular risk due to their high profile, before rolling out to include more businesses including SMEs and larger enterprises in early 2020. First year results are expected to be delivered from September 2019 and the project will conclude in September 2020.

Dr Tony Moore, commented:

“Cyber risk management needs to be addressed at board level and fully integrated into broader strategic and business planning”.
