For too long, information technology has operated as a separate part of the business, with leadership and IT teams struggling to understand the language and priorities of each other.
Cybersecurity has now become a critical business risk – not just a technology issue. Businesses have to rethink how they manage cybersecurity – moving it from a technology issue into the C-suite.
Businesses now need a new breed of talent who can talk the language of the boardroom and manage the risks – and opportunities – of the vast amount of information held by organisations. These new leaders also need to influence employee behaviours, creating a culture that understands and respects cybersecurity risks. Most cybersecurity breaches are because employees failed to follow protocols that should protect the business.
