Cyber security needs to be a board level issue
by Tom Neaves, Senior Security Consultant, and John Yeo, EMEA Director of Trustwave - Monday, 21 January 2013.
As identified in the Cyber Security Strategy in 2011, there exists a present cyber security threat to UK businesses; which are continuously growing as we become more heavily reliant on the Internet to conduct business. It is time for those at the board level to realise that technology has increasingly become the heart of their business rather than something that aids it. Attacks on this technology have the potential to disrupt business operations permanently. As Iain Lobban, Director of GCHQ, points out “Value, Revenue and Credibility are at stake. Don’t let cyber security become the agenda – put it on the agenda.”
