    For senior executives, information security is a basic requirement for business success. Yet, despite being well-motivated, top managers often have only a superficial understanding of information security, which may lead them to make decisions that are not conductive to raising the organization’s security level.

Playing a decisive role, they must assume overall responsibility for information security. The question is how to achieve this in an efficient and natural way.
