Many companies—particularly those in Australia—have a laissez-faire attitude when it comes to cybersecurity.Â A lack of executive-level knowledge, leadership and understanding of cybersecurity risk and governance is further complicating many organisations’ abilities to effectively address sophisticated threats.
It’s clear that all members across the organization, not only IT need to be empowered to have the conversation around cyber risk, and this must become a routine and subject in Australian boardroom discussions. For this reason, Palo Alto Networks in conjunction with Australian thought leaders from the public and private sector have come together to write, Navigating the Digital Age: The Definitive Cybersecurity Guide for Directors and Officers (Australian Edition). This guide was intended as both a how-to guide and an anthology. It includes advice and cybersecurity best practices from CEOs, CISOs, lawyers, consultants and former government officials.
