Cybersecurity Become a Board Room Imperative: Infosys
According to new research by Infosys Knowledge Institute (IKI), the research arm of Infosys, titled “Assuring Digital-Trust,” 48% of corporate boards and 63% of business leaders were actively involved in cybersecurity strategy discussions. IKI surveyed 867 senior executives from 847 firms with annual revenues over US$500 million. These firms were from countries like the U.S., Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The report pointed out that organizations are now finding it difficult to embed security in their enterprise IT architecture due to several factors like lack of cybersecurity talent, and inability to keep up with the technological advancements and evolving threat landscape.
