A seemingly unending stream of high-profile breaches have made security a hot topic in the C-suite. It only makes sense for CFOs to get more involved. After all, the potential ramifications of a security breach, such as downtime, lost productivity, and threats to intellectual property, all hit hard on the bottom line.
That's why we weren't surprised by a recent survey spotlighted in the Wall Street Journal's "CIO Report" showing that CFOs are stepping up their involvement in security issues. Two-thirds of US tech CFOs surveyed said they're spending more to protect their networks and data. Of those, almost half said they're bringing in external consultants to help — and that makes sense, too. CFOs are responsible for making sure their companies invest in the best their budget can provide.
