The tables have turned and it's no longer the IT department who's solely responsible for cyber security. CEOs are now fully owning cyber security as part of their agenda. CIOs and CISOs can breathe a small sigh of relief that half of company leaders believe they are fully prepared for an cyber attack as listed in KPMG's CEO Outlook 2017.
Not only do CEOs want to keep cyber security on their radar to be prepared for threats, but they need to stay one step of ahead of cyber criminals. The best news for anyone in IT - CEOs see cyber security as an opportunity because investments in cyber security are turning out to be a positive on the balance sheet.
More than two-thirds of CEOs see cyber security investment as a revenue opportunity rather than a financial burden, a new survey claims.
