Companies are increasingly vulnerable to incoming cybersecurity threats from new directions and adversaries. Attacks in the form of “hacktivism,” corporate espionage, insider and government threats, terrorism, and criminal activity can cost an organization time, resources, and irreparable harm to their reputation if not handled appropriately. Investors can examine corporate disclosures and engage with management to better consider the potential implications of Cybersecurity when assessing investment options. It’s more than a technology issue in the back office; it’s a critical business issue that can dramatically impact company’s competitive position.
