OnTheBoard (OTB) is a project dedicated to providing valuable and timely information and resources to smaller organizations' board members/directors, independent owners, and those individuals that need to be well informed when reporting to a board or board committee.

OTB content contributors work daily researching the areas they advise on and have to routinely report their findings to Boards of Directors and other responsible parties. Smaller organizations cannot usually hire this same talent but may have the same oversight responsibilities. Our goal at OTB is to assist these individuals by keeping them informed on the relevant topics of the day but with little effort so that they may well prepared to perform their duty to serve and protect their company, the workforce, and its customers. Our periodic briefings take about 60 seconds to review when they arrive in your inbox. View content from past briefings here.

Although OTB primarily focuses on the areas of technology, cybersecurity, and regulatory compliance, various other topics will also be highlighted. And, regardless of the specific industry an article may reference, all topics generally apply in some way to other industries.

As a leader, you have a responsibility to make the best possible decisions to ensure the well-being of your organization. We welcome your repeated visits and hope you will consider joining our group.
