A Comparative Study on Cyber Risk: Business vs. Security Perspectives - Research Report

In H2 2023, Google Cloud partnered with Information Security Media Group (ISMG) and surveyed 343 senior executives at major enterprises globally, divided into two groups of respondents: cybersecurity professionals and executive board members who are not cybersecurity professionals, to compare and contrast their perspectives on the role of cybersecurity in relation to organizations achieving their business or mission goals.

Areas we were keen to survey include:

  • Views on current board capabilities and understanding of cybersecurity’s role in addressing business risk;
  • Board advice to CISOs on what they need to hear from their security teams compared to what the cybersecurity teams think they should be communicating;
  • CISO advice to boards on what they need to ask of their cybersecurity teams versus what their boards think they should be asking;
  • Perspectives on priorities and mitigation strategies in relation to cybersecurity threats;
  • Board and CISO perspectives on the risks and opportunities presented by generative AI.

More than just survey results, this report offers expert analysis of what both boards and cybersecurity professionals perceive to be the main challenges around communicating cybersecurity risk and addressing or mitigating vulnerabilities.

Download this report today to benchmark what the industry is doing in regard to boards addressing cybersecurity so that you can use these results to replicate best practice and avoid common errors in approach.
