The contemporary threat landscape is becoming more complex and sophisticated, demanding that executives participate in cyber security discussions and don’t leave it up to IT departments and Information Security generalists to perfect and protect the security posture of an organisation.
In our post COVID-19 world, being securely digital is likely to be the difference between success and failure.
With two thirds of the world population, c5.2 Billion people, on the internet, hackers from every corner of the world are just one click away from your digital doorstep - each operating with different laws, motivations and attitudes.
Organisations are migrating to the cloud and adopting SaaS at breakneck speed, often without contemplating the associated risks and cyber security implications.
Even more than before, as an executive you need to be involved in cyber security discussions because leaders set the tone of importance.
Organisations can not afford to pigeon hole cyber security as an issue for IT departments - it is a business challenge that must be embraced in executive agendas and budgeting.
Most organisations are spending money to prevent cyber incidents, but is it enough and is it money well spent?
