When it comes to the CEO and cybersecurity, pressure has mounted on chief executives to become more involved in — and understanding of — the challenges their business face. Indeed, as a sweeping new PwC report finds, executives in most regions and industries say “the most important act for a more secure digital society by 2030 is educating CEOs and boards so they can better fulfill their cyber duties and responsibilities”.

The report also finds that chief executives at companies that had the best cybersecurity outcomes over the past two years are a huge fourteen times more likely to provide “significant and broad” support to cybersecurity. Specifically, the October 2021 report (“The C-suite guide to simplifying for cyber readiness“) emphasises four “Ps” for CEOs to focus on as they start to take a more active role in ensuring their businesses are secure.
