Make executives understand the security risk they pose to the business


"Top-level executives must be made to understand the risk they pose to their own firms owing to the nature of their position and should drive cyber security awareness across the business, according to Darren Argyle, CISO at market research firm IHS Markit.

Argyle said at the Investment Week Cyber Security Strategy Briefing 2016 event, in partnership with V3 sister title Computing, that efforts to increase cyber awareness will not have an impact without buy-in from the board.

‘You have to have support from the top. Security will not work in any company if you don’t have that,’ he said.

Argyle explained that those responsible for security in a company should do this by making it clear just how big an impact a cyber attack could have.”
