The Tone in the Middle: The Biggest Hindrance to a Cybersecurity Culture

Presented by

Steven Ross, Executive Principal | Risk Masters International

About this talk

Senior management is generally supportive of cybersecurity and lower-level staff do what they’re told to do. Middle management, however, is beset by perverse incentives to sell, sell, sell; cut costs; and do more with less. This leaves them without enough mind-space left to focus attention on cybersecurity. Tune into this cyber-session to discover tips and ideas covering: --Finding and fixing the middle management weak spots. --The consequences of a cybersecurity culture based on inaction. --Potential solutions, tailored for middle managers, to enhance a cybersecurity culture.
