ADISA launches key UK Conference

With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) being enshrined into UK law on 25 May, there is a growing appreciation that GDPR and data protection as a whole require a thorough understanding of all aspects that could lead to non-compliance and/or data breach, and therefore put organisations at risk of being in breach of the new legislation

Welcome to the April 2018 issue of the Computing Security Newsletter.

More than 90% of surveyed senior business leaders agree that strong technology governance contributes to improved business outcomes and increased agility.

That’s according to ISACA’s latest research, ‘Better Tech Governance Is Better for Business’. Despite recognising the link between governance and outcomes, a governance gap still exists, with 69% reporting that their leadership and board of director teams need to establish a clearer link between business and IT goals.

The data delves into corporate governance of all things digital, increased responsibilities and funding priorities as well as asking if boardrooms are doing all they can to plan, train, fund and safeguard their organization’s digital assets.

Said Matt Loeb, CEO of ISACA. “The message from our research is clear: there is much work to do in information and technology governance. Committing to a boardroom with technology savvy and experience strongly represented provides the needed foundation for organisations to effectively and securely innovate through technology.”

Not all executive teams and boards walk the walk, in matters of digital security. Data shows that only 55% say their organisation’s leadership team and board are “doing everything they can” to safeguard their digital assets and data. By contrast, 21% don’t think their leadership team and board are “doing everything they can” to safeguard these assets and data.

As a part of overall governance, cyber security policies and defences were cited as the number one corporate governance technological challenge and opportunity faced by senior leadership teams globally. Yet only 21 percent of senior leadership and boards are briefed on risk topics at every senior leadership meeting. Meanwhile, only one-third of organisations assess risk related to technology use on a monthly or more frequent basis.

All of this reinforces how far adrift many enterprises still are over their security. Despite all of the warmings – and all of the attacks – somehow the warnings are still falling on too many deaf ears.
