12 Days of Cyber- Improving Cyber Security Should ...

As 2015 comes to a close people’s attention now inevitably turns to the year ahead. Many cyber security experts are predicting that the cyber threat is set to increase in 2016, but if a company’s leadership takes steps to counter the dangers they can keep their business as safe as possible.

With cyber security threats on the rise, CEOs need to take the matter seriously. The thinking that an (often under resourced) IT department can handle all of the threats to a business is not good enough. CEOs need to educate themselves on the cyber risks so that they can understand what they can do to help protect their businesses.

If a CEO does not understand the threat and implications of a cyber security breach, they are less likely to devote adequate resources to implementing effective security measures. In some cases the matter of information security only registers on a board’s radar after a security breach has occurred. By that time the damage will have already been done and in the case of a smaller organisation the repercussions can be devastating.
