The first article in a series entitled Changing the Cybersecurity Culture from Within: Leading from the Bottom-up, Dr. Romeo Farinacci, Cyber Security expert and former Program Director for IT and Cyber Security at Grand Canyon University’s College of Science, Engineering, and Technology (CSET), describes how cybersecurity needs to be adopted by CEOs as a key strategic effort within their company.
Data is among a company’s most valuable assets. Leadership will be held responsible for data breaches that occur on their watch ($450B in 2016), because of the financial consequences these attacks have on their organization. Consider the number of resignations submitted in the last five years as result of a data breach: Target’s CIO and CEO in 2014, the head of the US government’s personnel office in 2015, and OPM’s CIO in 2016. Dr. Farinacci talks about how your leadership can stay out of trouble with the law by implementing cybersecurity measures.
