About The Book
Cyber risk managers know that sometimes there is disconnect between the way they view cybersecurity versus the way their businesses leaders do. This communication disconnect can cause a lack of cybersecurity prioritization in a business and lead to costly, damaging breaches. Managing cyber risk requires more than firewalls and good passwords. Cash flow, insurance, relationships, and legal affairs for an organization all play major roles in managing cyber risk. Treating cybersecurity as “just an IT problem” leaves an organization exposed and unprepared. Therefore, executives and cyber risk managers have to get on the same page.
Cybersecurity: A Business Solution is a concise guide to managing cybersecurity from a business perspective, written specifically for the leaders of small and medium businesses. This book helps cyber risk managers communicate their priorities to businesses leaders by providing a step-by-step approach to managing the financial impact of cybersecurity. The strategy provides the knowledge your business leaders need to better engage with cybersecurity. The book also covers common pitfalls that lead to a false sense of security. And, to help offset the cost of higher security, it explains how business leaders can leverage investments in cybersecurity to capture market share and realize more profits.
