Welcome to the July 2018 issue of the Computing Security Newsletter

The level of engagement with the business at the top of our corporate trees can sometimes be breathtaking. In one recent survey, only 55% of those who responded said their organisation’s leadership team and board are “doing everything they can” to safeguard digital assets and data.

There is plenty of lip service, but not enough action, it would seem. 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% of senior leadership and boards are briefed on risk topics at every senior leadership meeting, while just one-third of organisations assess risk related to technology use on a monthly or more frequent basis.

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 findings come in ‘Better Tech Governance Is Better for Business’, research carried out by ISACA, which engages in the development, adoption and use of globally accepted, industry-leading knowledge and practices for information systems. “The boardroom must become hyper-vigilant in ensuring a tight linkage between business goals and IT goals, fully leveraging business technology to improve business outcomes, while diligently safeguarding the organisation’s digital assets,” says 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.”
