The issue of how to keep sensitive information safe and secure is of a high priority and should be a part of any business's boardroom discussion.
This is according to Glen Gooding, director at IBM Asia-Pacific institute for advanced security, who expressed the sentiment while addressing the recent IBM security symposium in Sydney.
He said: "The security story is very quickly moving from being an IT based discussion to a business level discussion. Senior executives are going to be more involved in understanding how secure their organisations are."
Mr Gooding noted that there are a number of areas that top management needs to consider in terms of security and data recovery. These include the rise of BYOD (bring your own device) in the workplace, a surge in Big Data and the adoption of cloud computing.
Many organisations are wary of using the latter as they need to be reassured when it comes to their perception of cloud security.
Fortunately, figures show that senior executives are paying more attention to the importance of data protection.
In a recent IBM survey, two-thirds of respondents said that they are spending more and increasing budgets within their organisations' security platforms.
