A settlement filed on March 2 between Yahoo Inc and shareholders stipulated that Yahoo would be required to pay $80 million to plaintiffs harmed by data breaches occurring in 2013 and 2014. Newmeyer & Dillion Managing Partner Jeff Dennis spoke with reporter Kate Fazzini of WSJ Pro Cybersecurity about the settlement and provided insight on what it means for boards concerned about cyber risk.

“[Boards] must understand regulations, set and prioritize cyber initiatives with a focus on reporting and examine how they are managing external risk, including risk from third parties,” said Mr. Dennis, adding “The board doesn’t need to do day-to-day management, but it does need to set the agenda and tone at these companies so they understand cyberrisk is an important part of the business.”
