BusinessWeek: Organizations with top executives who aren’t involved in cybersecurity decisions face a serious problem — a major hit to their bottom lines, according to a report released Wednesday. …”Many organizations see cybersecurity as solely an IT problem,” said Karen Hughes, director of homeland security standards programs at the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), one of the major sponsors of the new report. “We are directing a wake-up call to executives nationwide. The message is, this is a very serious issue, and it’s costing you a lot of money.” … The report, called “The Financial Management of Cyber Risk,” recommends how C-level executives can implement cybersecurity risk management programs at their companies. Part of the goal is to get executives such as chief financial officers directly involved in cybersecurity efforts, said Larry Clinton, president of the Internet Security Alliance (ISA), the other major sponsor of the report.
