One of the most important pieces of a successful breach response is senior executive involvement. Yet research by Ponemon Institute shows that only 45 percent of executives believe they’re accountable for the incident reporting process. In fact, they view breaches as part of the cost of doing business.
Convincing the C-suite to prioritize cybersecurity can sometimes feel like an uphill battle, which is why we spoke on that topic during our recent webinar with the Disaster Recovery Journal. During the session, Rentsys Senior Manager Brandon Tanner and Director of Network Services Scott Frieszell offered their top three tips for getting the C-suite on board with cybersecurity initiatives:
- Don’t start at the top.
- Emphasize the benefits to stakeholders in each department.
- Provide a picture of the total impact.
