Join Steve Maciejewski for an in-depth discussion in this video CIO top priorities, part of Cybersecurity Awareness: Security Overview.
- [Narrator] Let's start at the top and try to understand the risks that corporations are grappling with today. What the C Suite Wants to Know and we have several surveys that we're going to discuss and they're related to the cyber-security risk management and corporate leadership perspective. Starting with the CIO and looking at his five top concerns. He's looking at external threats, the change in the way the business is conducted, the rapid advance of technology or the change of technology, regulatory compliance issues and concerns, and then the changing market and client needs.
So, what is an external threat? Everybody says external threat. External threat is organized crime, simply put, it's the ability for criminals to leverage technology for financial gain. Number one concern. Number two, nation states. Nation states are governments that seek to take advantage of you through the development and exploitation and implementation of cyber-technology. Number of three of external threats in my mind, cyber espionage and like other businesses using various methods of technology to exfiltrate information for a competitive advantage.
Number four in external threats, hactivism. Political groups seeking attention or awareness by any means possible, including cyber-terrorism. In summary, number one, external threats of cyber-security is really the number one risk for most CIOs today or CISOs.
