13:05 The General Counsel as Board Member in the Cyber Century

General Counsels are frequently called on to present to their Boards and advise them on key deliberations. However, it is still uncommon for GCs to sit on an outside board as a Non-Executive Director. In today’s world, where issues with heavy legal and regulatory content —from cybersecurity to data privacy to social media—become central to many organizations’ business strategy and challenge, the GC experience may be emerging as a realistic Board profile for the seasoned legal officer.

In this roundtable, Selena Loh LaCroix, global leader of the Legal, Regulatory and Compliance Practice at executive recruiting firm Egon Zehnder, will discuss how the role of the General Counsel has evolved from technical expert to member of the strategic executive leadership team, and how General Counsels can prepare for the next step in this evolution by positioning themselves as potential directors. She will draw on her experience consulting with boards on a range of issues to give a “board’s eye view” of how nominating committees identify, evaluate and select candidates and will provide insights into how General Counsels can prepare to be first-time board members.
