Cyber Circle #3 Why do key business initiatives fail - using cyber security as an example

24 March 2022 - Zurich

Many organizations are built in silos and only selectively empower teams to act horizontally. But there are initiatives that simply cannot follow these rules. Cyber security is not a task of a job or a department. It is culture, a mandate for action and a "key success factor" all in one. Therefore, senior leadership, management, risk dashboards, business units and individuals alike must be picked up to make security even possible. In this third Cyber Circle, Speaker Simon Merki and Kristina Tanasic put this challenge under the microscope. The big questions were: Is this even possible? Where do we start and what can we say? Read more about this topic in our blog!
