How to convince your financial team of the importance of cyber security

IT teams know how important cyber security is, but how can they convince other parts of the business?

"We've done it in a number of ways," said Steve Wright, chief privacy officer at Unilever. "The first way was by introducing a number of short videos that allowed them to understand, in a language that they were familiar with, what the risks were and how those risks could materialise into something quite catastrophic."

Speaking at The European Information Security Summit 2016, he said the firm also made changes to its quarterly reports, giving updates on what the latest cyber threats and potential penalties for breaches are in layman's terms understandable to all.
