Manage cybersecurity risk effectively across an evolving risk landscape
Digital business brings new risks
Cybersecurity risks pervade every organization and aren't always under IT's direct control. Business leaders are forging ahead with their digital business initiatives, and those leaders are making technology-related risk choices every day. Increased cyber risk is real — but so are the data security solutions.
CIOs must engage in digital risk management
CIOs must become the central agent stressing the connections between business and digital risk. The key is to build influence across business units and ecosystems to better manage security and risk, find the right talent and ensure appropriate levels of protection.
"The thing that kept me awake at night (as NATO military commander) was cybersecurity. Cybersecurity proceeds from the highest levels of our national interest ... through our medical, our educational, to our personal finance (systems). "
