Building a Cyber Secure Business Culture

On September 2, AmCham’s Security Committee, in partnership with the U.S. Embassy and the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC), gathered at Lundgrens Law Firm for a discussion on how to develop a cyber secure business culture.

Building a culture of cyber security is increasingly a challenge as IT and business are becoming more and more integrated. In addition, business leaders and security responsible executives are being offered an exhaustive selection of services and solutions to reduce vulnerabilities and ultimately cyber- and business risk.

During the event, we heard from business leaders who are adopting new ways to build a culture of cyber security within an organization. The chairman of the Global Centre for Cybersecurity (World Economic Forum), Troels Ørting, started off by stressing the importance of taking a top-down approach in weaving a cyber secure business culture into the fabric of businesses – vertically and horizontally – and bringing awareness to various cyber security threats that may arise.

Following Mr. Ørting’s talk, we heard from the Global Head of Fraud Management at Danske Bank, Ketil Clorius, who also emphasized the need for clearer communication and more transparency when it comes to cyber risks within the business community.

Lastly, the Head of Global Information Security and Service Transition, Global IT at Coloplast, Per Tardum, shared lessons learned from his organization’s cyber security approach/experiences.
