Cybersecurity Is Your Business

A practical guide for executives in the battle against the $8 trillion threat to your company, customers and employees.

Is your company ready for the next cyberattack?

The risk your company faces from digital attacks is growing in scale and complexity. 

We are witnessing a cybercrime explosion, an increase in state actor attacks and a proliferation of cyber tools which will syphon an estimated $8 trillion from global businesses and society this year alone.

This guide shares best practices from companies that successfully mitigated a breach and lessons from those that struggled. These are real-world insights based on an analysis of hundreds of cyber and data security incidents that Brunswick’s global cybersecurity
experts helped resolve.

We’ve distilled that analysis into this booklet, which outlines how board directors, chief executive officers and C-suite leaders across multiple functions should prepare for – and respond to – an almost inevitable cybersecurity breach.

We hope that these insights will help you defend, and even enhance, your company’s reputation.
