Cyber security has become a frequently debated risk, and according to the World Economic Report is a top-5 risk to world economies and stability. It’s slightly behind other risks such as natural disasters, failure to mitigate climate change, and extreme weather. Cybersecurity now impacts almost everyone globally, exposes us to significant risks, and has quickly become everyone’s responsibility—including the boardrooms’. Because companies are so heavily dependent on technology, they are exposed to cyber threats which can occur at any moment and come from anywhere.

The CISO has one of the most difficult and challenging jobs in any business today. They are typically hidden in the background of the organization, working vigorously with their security and operation teams to keep the critical systems and sensitive data protected from bad actors and cyber criminals. They keep systems updated, patch around the clock, deliver cyber security awareness training, control and secure privileged access. This is just several of the tasks the CISO has to tackle, not including the ever-growing compliance and regulations that the business must meet.

Given the enormous impact of security breaches and expanding compliance requirements, CISOs need to understand and overcome these internal challenges to get budget resources and avoid burnout. In a recent study, almost 50% of cyber security professionals believe their executive boards see them strictly in a maintenance role rather than as a source for business innovation. Thycotic’s recent research highlights key management issues facing those responsible for cyber security, including the need to address perceptions of the board, senior leadership and employees. However at any level – cyber security professionals need to be able to align security and business priorities.

Join Thycotic for their next webinar, “Guiding Your Cyber Security Team to Success: How to Measure Results, Secure Budget, and Avoid Stress” on Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 11:00 AM ET to learn more about improving leadership skills and communicating with the board.
