In the Financial Times article “Former Equifax CEO Grilled on Capitol Hill,” partner Miriam H. Wugmeister emphasizes the key role boards need to serve in preventing a data breach.

“The Equifax breach makes clear that boards of directors need to be proactively asking the hard questions regarding whether management is prepared to respond to a crisis,” she said. “Things happen, people make mistakes and the criminals and nation-state actors are persistent, but the key question in whether a company can respond effectively and be resilient. Boards play a key role in prodding companies to be in a good position to respond.”
