governance-of-cybersecurity-report-1-1024Palo Alto Networks recently sponsored the Georgia Tech Governance of Cybersecurity: 2015 Report. The report revealed the need to increase awareness among senior leaders on the importance of cybersecurity risk management and proper investments in the right people, process and technologies need to prevent cyber threats.

It also revealed how Corporate Boards from around the world are increasingly focusing on cybersecurity – a huge change over the past 3 years – and recommended the need for cybersecurity to be integrated as part of an organizations’ overall Risk Management strategy and posture.

It is interesting analysis and should be a signal to companies (and their Boards) who are not yet including cybersecurity as a part of their overall Risk Management policy that they are behind and need to start making changes. This integration and communication of an organizations cybersecurity needs and vulnerabilities with business leaders and risk management strategists is the key to the foundation of an effective overall Digital Risk Management strategy and framework. Check out their infographic here that sums up their findings.

 

For more info, consider joining us at the DRM Institute. We have made significant progress developing this industry-first DRM Framework – a consistent, unified approach to measuring and managing digital risk that has the potential to deliver cost efficiencies and greater risk assurance for business processes than the fragmented approach currently in place in most large organizations. It will also provide a generally accepted set of DRM knowledge and best practices enriched by concrete experiences of industry leaders, and facilitate benchmarking by digital risk officers against those practices.
