Cybersecurity starts at the top

Effective cybersecurity starts at the top of the organization, not at the technology level.  Whether it is the CEO of the company, or the President of a country, if the senior leaders aren’t actively paying attention to an issue, their subordinates tend to not pay attention to it either.  The article below describes why organizational leaders need to be more informed about the organization’s cybersecurity.  While that is a good first step, it is only the beginning.  Organizations need to move to a leadership-involved model, where the Board and C-suite are involved in setting cybersecurity priorities and policies.  This may sound intimidating to some executives, but Fathom Cyber has tools and techniques that make cybersecurity make sense.
