Board members can face liability, either for taking an action or failing to take action. As business becomes increasingly driven by technology on all levels, corporate board members are increasingly at risk because of their duty to exercise oversight and monitor all aspects of a company’s technological operations. This includes everything from how electronic information is stored, the company’s IT operations, privacy issues, the protection of assets in digital form, and the company’s day-to-day technology processes.
