Abstract

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 conducive to raising the organization's security level. Enhancing information security awareness among all employees has been found necessary, but the key to success is raising the awareness level of senior management. 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.
