Most CEOs cite malware as the greatest cybersecurity risk while their technical officers see identity breaches as the greater threat. This C-suite disconnect can lead to weak IT decisions that do not reflect or address the true primary threats each individual company is facing. A survey of 800 senior executives by Centrify and Dow Jones Intelligence found that 60% of CEOs expect to invest the most in protecting against malware rather than identity security protections although 68% of executives whose companies have already been breached acknowledge that the attack could have been prevented with identity and access protection.
To avoid this disconnect companies must communicate security threats and breaches to all C-suite executives. Once these risks have been communicated the company must then take an honest look at their greatest vulnerabilities and adjust their security decisions and investments accordingly.
