CrowdChat: The Cyber Security Disconnect

CrowdChat: The Cyber Security Disconnect

How prepared is your company for a cyber attack? Our recent research revealed that there is a massive disconnect between business leaders and IT leaders when it comes to security planning and priorities. One of the key findings was that despite a quarter of office workers across EMEA believing the CEO should be accountable for cyber attacks, they were frequently being kept in the dark by IT leaders about cyber attacks that were happening in this company. This divide, combined with the complexities of an increasingly digital world, is forcing a rethink of security.

If you’ve got any burning questions on how to bridge this gap, join us on Thursday 7th July at 11:30am (GMT), where we’ll be hosting a live social discussion – via CrowdChat –  to explore this cyber security disconnect between CEOs and IT leaders. We’ll be joined by a panel of VMware spokespeople, customers and partners, who will discuss with you what can be done to bridge this disconnect.

Discover the extent of the divide between IT and business leaders and find out top tips on how to deal with these issues without affecting the productivity and flexible working strategy of the wider business.
