Cyber Security: Not just an Equation between Risk Appetite, Compliance and Costs

Cyber security has risen as a key issue on the radar of virtually all organisations. As a recent AT Kearney report suggests, cyber-attacks have been topping executives’ lists of business risks for three straight years. In fact, the overwhelming majority of organisations have experienced some form of cyber-attack at some point over the past few years.

As every enterprise is becoming more and more data-driven, it is key for the Board to realize that cyber security is becoming a central tenet both of its core business and of its social impact and governance strategies.

A way to achieve this could be to frame cyber security as a formal and integral part of a company’s Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) strategy, and this is the proposition the Security Transformation Research Foundation analyses in its latest White Paper.
