This webcast provided more background on the updates and findings on the business topics that have the ability to cripple business continuity and pose significant legal and regulatory risk. Due to the pervasiveness of digital technologies and the importance of data privacy across sectors, SAM anticipates that both these criteria will become applicable to an even wider range of industries in the years to come.
Rolled out to 18 additional industries in 2019, this criterion focuses on how companies manage their information security risks in order to ensure business continuity, and how effective these measures have been. At a best practice-level, the board of directors is involved in the strategy and review process, companies have a variety of security measures in place including training and audits, their IT infrastructures are certified according to ISO 27001 and they have experienced few or no breaches in the last three years.
Please find the highlighted developments and performance norms in more detail in the downloadable summary on top of the page.
