IDG Contributor Network: Digital resilience – a step up from cybersecurity
For many years those of us working in cybersecurity fought hard to elevate the issue beyond the realms of the IT department and into the boardroom.
Recent evidence suggests that the message is finally starting to get through. According to a study by U.S. consultants McKinsey, 75 percent of executives said they considered cybersecurity to be a top priority.
Another survey by UK consultants KPMG revealed that cybersecurity was very much on the agenda in UK boardrooms, with 74 percent of UK business leaders agreeing that cybersecurity was an enabler of trust, and 45 percent believing cybersecurity specialists were an effective part of the business.
