In a recent interview for the World Economic Forum, Jason Healey, Senior Fellow at The Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative stated “we believe companies should govern from the board on down” after been requested by the interviewer regarding where accountability for cyber risk should start. I cannot agree more! No doubt, the tone in this matter (and in any other being of corporate interest) must be set from the top.
Convinced of that, it is funny to know initiatives -and also to participate in them, as CCI has done, via its President, Jose Valiente- like the one led recently by the Spanish Center of High Studies on National Defense (CESEDEN) and the utility company Iberdrola. Just a few days ago they organized a session, with representation at the highest levels of both organizations, to analyze the challenges posed by cyber incidents to National Defense and electricity supply. Supplying that has its most critical source in nuclear plants. A good reason for having a deep understanding and a greater awareness of cyber risk in such plants!
