who is responsible for my company's cyber security?
It is the board and top management who are responsible for your company's cyber security. Digitization, IT, and cyber security become of increasing importance for Danish companies, as it is central to the companies' development and operation. It is necessary to constantly innovate and adapt to your customers' needs and demands, and to address and respond to the increasing threat to security by criminals. This includes the need to enter into agreement with vendors and cooperating partners about advise and supply of and/or collaboration about digital services. A field of service where legal advise presumes in-depth knowledge of business norms and customs.
It is the board's responsibility to deal with the company's risks including cyber risks. Consequently, cyber security is a board matter. The board must ensure that your company has a cyber security strategy.
It is important with exact demands to cyber security in your IT-vendor contracts. Often vendors will make use of sub-vendors, which is why it is important for these also to comply to the same demands of security as the vendors.
The cyber security strategy is carried out in an IT security policy, which in greater detail explains what applies in relation to access control, protection of information, documentation, logging etc.
The company should make sure to have an Internet and e-mail policy, so that every employee at any time knows what applies in relation to use of Internet and e-mail.
Using the right insurances, the company may in certain situations have its financial risk reduced in case of cyber attacks, and for this reason the posibilities of cyber insurance should be looked into.
