"Suspecting and knowing are not the same."
Information Security nowadays requires more than just knowing the bits and bytes, or the controls required by a given framework by heart.
Ensuring business continuity requires a new, higher level of awareness as part of the company culture, and a comprehensive understanding of risks associated with the data processing, transmitting and warehousing sides of your business.
Information Security is one of several business risks that management must address as part of its day-to-day responsibilities.
The simplest and most efficient solution to avoiding a major incident is incorporating Information Security into the day-to-day operations of the institution and making it part of the culture.
The success of this approach is directly dependent on management's commitment to set the "tone from the top" and provide effective leadership for the program.

Senior leaders must understand what's at risk, how information is protected and what their institutions or agencies are doing to maintain regulatory compliance.
