Breach Detection BREACH DETECTION

C-level executives need to increase literacy in cyber security and its associated risks, a study has revealed.

In a poll of 400 business executives and IT security professionals at Fortune 500 companies, only 68% of execs said they were confident that cybersecurity briefings to the board represent the urgency and intensity of cyber threats targeting their organizations, compared with 80% of IT pros.

According to The Cyber Security Literacy Confidence Gap study, C-level executives (65%) are also less confident than non-C-level executives (87%) and IT executives (78%) in the accuracy of the tools their organization uses to present cyber security risks to the board.

Despite this lack of confidence, 100% of C-level executives and 84% of non-C-level executives consider themselves “cyber security literate”, despite ongoing cyber attacks and high-profile breaches.
