The importance of managing cybersecurity has increased as the dependency upon online digital services has grown, and as threats to the digital economy have increased in sophistication and volume. Senior executives and board directors remain apprehensive when it comes to governing the quality of their organization’s cybersecurity. Whilst there has been a growth in awareness in recent years, this has not provided terminology or metrics that allow them to confidently govern cybersecurity. A systematic literature review demonstrates there is limited research targeted at this audience. The more technical cybersecurity and risk professionals are better served. Further research is warranted so that a practical cybersecurity model aimed at senior executives and board directors is defined. This would be akin to financial reporting that frames the financial posture in terms of cash flow, assets, and liabilities. The model would be extensible and enable improvements through further research as cybersecurity evolves.
