Okay, so it’s October and that means it’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month. And, for the past four years, I have maintained that “cybersecurity is everybody’s business.” I maintain this is, in fact, the case. However, it’s clear that, for many of us, our responsibilities related to cybersecurity are, well, not clear.
According to newly released ISACA and CMMI Institute research on cybersecurity culture, only 34 percent of employees have a sound understanding of their role in their organizations’ security culture. While some may find this statistic startling, I see it more as sobering.
