Reporting skills important for any cyber security training
When it comes to major attacks, in many cases corporate executives are handing the full cyber security responsibility to their IT staff.
Surveys revealed almost 90 percent of corporate executives were not able to read or understand an IT security report.
The majority of IT security employees were unable to deliver their reports in a “non-tech” and “understandable” way to their CEO’s, CIO’s or the Board Members.
There are two ways to fix this issue, and they are best used together:
#1: Corporate executives need to be educated about cyber security and become fluent in the issue to be able to determine the IT staff’s performance. – according to Dave Damato, chief security officer at Tanium.
#2: Corporate executives need to educate their IT staff so they are able to interpret their own tech-language into a “proper” report and deliver the information in an understandable way.
