Gartner’s security and risk management trends for 2019 demonstrate CEOs’ growing awareness of risk

March 12, 2019

It is not uncommon for CEOs and other board members to talk a good game when it comes to cyber security. They discuss in public the seriousness with which they approach managing cyber security, and talk internally about the need for vigilance and for all employees to be mindful and smart on matters relating to security.

But the reality can be very different. Many CEOs are often just paying lip service to cyber security, without allocating the required investment in staff and infrastructure that modern security and risk management requires.

But the latest report from industry analyst group Gartner identifies seven key sector trends and it would seem that finally CEOs are starting to show more interest in addressing cyber security and taking it as seriously as they need to.
