Digital Director Information and Board Goverance

“Digital” is a vague, catchall word that may mean different things to different people and appears to be applied to everything.  A company needs to define what it means to them.  Does digital already play a key role in your company’s strategy?  Are you thinking about it as part of a vision to transform your business?  Will you require AI to enhance operations or the customer experience?  Do you utilize a big data database?  Are you planning on expanding into the social media stream, perhaps for the first time?  Digital transformation requires strategy, tactics and goals applied against it. It requires a strategic board digital director.

A sound approach to digital governance provides a framework for establishing accountability, roles, and decision-making authority for an organization’s digital presence and cybersecurity – which includes its websites, mobile sites, social channels, SEO, PPC, and other Internet and Web-enabled products and services.

A “Digital Director” is a new kind of board member who provides support and oversight.  The Digital Director also helps the company mitigate cyber risk. Companies are adding new directors with digital backgrounds in part because most existing board directors lack representation in this area.
