What is Cybersecurity and What Does It Mean for Your Business?

Cybersecurity is the practice of deploying people, policies, processes, tools and technologies to protect organizations, their critical systems and sensitive information from digital attacks.

The Risk

Cybersecurity is a business problem that has been presented to Boards and Committees for years, and yet accountability still lies primarily with IT leaders.

In the 2022 Gartner Board of Directors Survey, 88% of board members classified cybersecurity as a business risk; just 12% called it a technology risk. Still, a 2021 survey showed that the CIO, the chief information security officer (CISO) or their equivalent were held accountable for cybersecurity at 85% of organizations. (Source: Gartner)
