From a business perspective, it is vital that a company - large or small - be able to identify their cyber security risk and effectively manage threats to their information systems. At the same time, all business managers including executives and directors must recognize that cyber risk management is an on-going process where no absolute security is, or will be, available. ICC works to improve network and information security for businesses and other users by raising awareness and providing practical tools that make security a higher priority for all.
Our key messages:
• Improving an organization's cyber security is possible through a risk management process - with an emphasis on management
• Leadership is necessary to take action and ensure information security best practices are employed by enterprises
• Multistakeholder partnerships are crucial for cyber security success
