As technology advances, so do the cybersecurity options that can assist in securing the enterprise. However, these options are tools, and although they provide a solution to the cybersecurity skills gap, they also create a false sense of security that executives are not aware of (due to them not being experts in the areas of cybersecurity and tech).
There’s a great disconnect within companies on the business value that comes from cybersecurity. The reasons are many, one of which, the lack of flow in communication between the CEO and IT department.
One of the biggest problems from a data breach for companies is the loss in consumer trust following a breach event. This loss of trust involves loss of customers and an effort on the part of companies to regain that trust to keep customers. Both regaining and/or keeping consumer trust can present a challenge when CEOs aren’t pushing for holistic security measures.
