The World Economic forum has released the results of a major study, which sheds light on business concerns across the west. The significant study of 12,000 executives concluded that in the west (North America and Europe) cybersecurity and cyberattacks are the top business risk.
Lisa Baergen, Director at NuData Security:
“This latest study from the World Economic Forum is somewhat bittersweet. While it’s a concern that cyberattacks are common and dangerous enough to top business leaders’ list of concerns, it’s undoubtedly a step in the right direction that his is at least being acknowledged. This means however that business leaders can no longer plead ignorance; They need to take appropriate measures to move beyond the traditional models of cybersecurity protection and account access if they hope to keep their businesses and customers safe.”
