While organizations need to defend themselves against potential attack, they must also accept that some attacks will inevitably succeed. Therefore an organization’s cyber resilience is now the critical survival factor – its ability to recover quickly once an attack has taken place.
Business continuity is unequivocally a boardroom responsibility, so directors will have to increase the attention and resources they devote to information security and resilience. For example, spending just 10% of the IT budget on security is no longer adequate to keep your organization in business.
IT Governance’s mission is to engage with business leaders and IT professionals about developing and implementing their cyber resilience strategy while ensuring they meet strict regulatory and compliance requirements, enabling businesses to compete effectively in the global information economy.
The ‘2014 Boardroom Cyber Watch Survey’ is the second annual survey we have undertaken specifically targeting chief executives, board directors and IT professionals. It demonstrates the issues organisations are facing in the constantly changing cyber threat landscape and how the boardroom’s and IT function’s perception of cyber risks is shifting.
