Some Board Level Executives Have Poor Grasp On Cyber Security

It's pretty damn scary when the people in charge of making day to day decisions for huge companies are this clueless when it comes to cyber security.

A significant number of board level executives still have such a poor grasp on cyber security issues that it threatens to put whole organisations at risk from data breaches. That's the stark warning following a survey by security company Palo Alto Networks which directly asked C-Level executives about their knowledge surrounding security issues and 13% said they only "kind of" understand what defines an online security risk to a businesses. Worryingly, many in leadership roles also said they still have to use Google to help explain cyber security risk.
