- CISO Global is an ideal partner for CEOs committed to providing the protection their companies need
- Business leaders need to prioritize security and promote its importance from the top down, says CEO
- “Ask any CEO to name the issues that keep them awake at night and cybersecurity risk is likely near the top of the list,” Forbes article states
Most CEOs agree that the responsibility for creating a cyber-resilient culture lands squarely on their shoulders. Forbes recently reported on a new study based on interviews with 37 CEOs who share their fears and insights about keeping their companies running despite cyberattacks (https://ibn.fm/mfBFa). The article identifies four key mindsets that CEOs need to lead cyber-resilient companies, mindsets that CISO Global (NASDAQ: CISO), formerly Cerberus Cyber Sentinel Corp., can help executives achieve.
“Cybersecurity is a companywide challenge, and all departments need to be involved to get it right,” CISO Global CEO David Jemmett has said (https://ibn.fm/Cykmp). “Business leaders, therefore, need to prioritize security and promote its importance from the top down, training employees and encouraging them to mirror the attitude.”
In the article, titled “The Essential Playbook on CEOs and Cyber Resiliency,” Forbes reports on a recent study from ISTARI and Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford. “More than any previous study, the report applies a top-management lens to cybersecurity risks and underscores the critical role CEOs play in building cyber resilience,” the article states. “It shares insights from 37 one-hour-long, face-to-face interviews with U.S., Asian and European CEOs whose businesses’ average revenue is $12 billion, employing an average of 40,000 employees. Nine of the CEOs interviewed had guided their company through a serious cyberattack.
“Ask any CEO to name the issues that keep them awake at night and cybersecurity risk is likely near the top of the list — with good reason,” the article continues. “With the accelerating digitalization of business models comes vulnerability to cyberattack. And while spending on cybersecurity increases every year, so does the number of serious incidents. Even the largest and most technologically advanced companies are not immune.”
The article identifies four mindsets that CEOs need to lead cyber-resilient businesses:
- CEOs interviewed said they feel accountable for cybersecurity
- CEOs should stay away from blindly trusting their technology teams
- CEOs should embrace what the authors call the “preparedness paradox,” or an inverse relationship between the perception of preparedness and resilience, meaning the better-prepared CEOs think their organization is for a serious cyberattack, the less resilient it actually is
- CEOs should adapt their communication styles to manage pressure from external stakeholders who may have different and sometimes conflicting demands
Given these concerns from top-ranked leaders, CISO is in the right place at the right time. The company is gaining recognition as a leading provider of global cybersecurity and compliance as it rapidly expands by acquiring world-class cybersecurity, secured managed services and compliance companies. These acquisitions bring top-tier talent to the CISO table, enabling the company to utilize the latest technology to create innovative solutions to protect the most demanding businesses and government organizations, mitigating continuing and emerging security threats and compliance obligations.
Firmly rooted in its core belief that “cybersecurity is a culture not a product,” CISO Global (NASDAQ: CSO) is an ideal partner for CEOs who are committed to providing the protection their companies need. CISO is on a mission to demystify and accelerate the journey to cyber resilience for its clients, empowering organizations to securely grow, operate and innovate (https://ibn.fm/LQqfW).
