The actual impact of cyber attacks continues to increase with the number of data records stolen doubling between 2018 and 2019 to over 13 billion data records. Although it is tempting to view this as a technical issue left to the folks in the Information Technology (IT) departments, it turns out that 70-80% of all cyber attacks are aided by insiders (usually unintentionally.)

This will help managers to better understand the true scope of cyber threats and how they can take an active leadership role in addressing cybersecurity.
