The Key Role of Organisation Culture in Cyber-Security Effectiveness

Wednesday 11th March 2020

The benefits of digitization are varied. For example, successful incorporation of a digital strategy into business operations can result in cost savings, enhanced organisational agility through rapid and accurate response to operating conditions, as well as improvement in the storage and sharing of information. However, comprehensive and balanced understanding of the value of a digital transformation needs to recognise and act on what is needed for effective attention to the threat of cyber intrusions.

This webinar will address a “Technology and More” commitment as necessary ingredients for effective response to attempts of digital breaches. The fundamentals require an acceptance that cyber-attack is a permanent threat that requires cyber culture to become a part of the personality of organisations. Keys to effectively transitioning to such an end state will be identified and addressed as well as a three-phase implementation suggestion. Cyber culture needs to become as much of an organisation and work force imperative and commitment as features such as quality, safety, and environmental stewardship.
