At the 1st and 2nd of November 2011 London Conference on Cyberspace, Foreign Secretary William Hague urged a "global co-ordinated response" on cyber security policy. A UK government study this year indicated internet crime costs businesses £21bn a year, with £9.2bn being intellectual property theft and £7.6bn industrial espionage.
In light of these challenges, KPMG has just released a Board member's guide to today’s information security and risk revolution. This publication provides CEO's, CIO's and Non-Executive Directors an introduction to the cyber security threat landscape today, and guidance on how to develop a pragmatic security strategy aligned to business goals.
This publication explores:
- The CEO’s practical guide to data security
- The CIO dilemma – Outsourcing data security
- The Disproportionate burden on Non Executive Directors
This complements KPMG’s recent e-crime survey report 2011 released in September 2011.
