IT Security Leaders, Board Members Need to Accept More Responsibility for Cybersecurity Risk

Data breaches and security incidents continue to plague enterprises, yet a surprisingly low percentage of these enterprises are actually taking proactive steps to improve their overall IT security posture. According to a new AttackIQ report based on Ponemon Institute research, 63% of IT security leaders do not report to the board of directors on a regular basis, and 40% do not report to the board at all. Moreover, as the AttackIQ report demonstrates, a majority of enterprises still have a reactive, incident-driven approach to IT security that leaves them very vulnerable to outside hackers.
