Cyber Attack Response Planning – Boardroom Oversight
Information technology has become the core of how we conduct business. Protecting a business’ IT is, therefore, essential all the way up to the board, owner, and chief executive level. As the rate of cyber crime rises by nearly half each year, the responsibility to defend against cyber threats by higher-ups becomes increasingly more important.
Cyber security is racing to stay ahead of cyber crime, and unless an organization is properly protected, cyber crime is bound to win. This progressively competitive race makes cyber security more than just an IT issue. Defense against cyber crime must be strategic and must align with the overall corporate strategy. That is why it becomes a board, owner, and chief executive-level issue. For more information on cyber security, read the Ernst and Young report, “Cyber Program Management.”
