Cyber Leadership Effectiveness Report

To coincide with the launch of our new web series and in line with the theme of our first episode, Avertro is proud to release our Cyber Leadership Effectiveness Report.

In June, Avertro conducted a study to test a hypothesis that the reporting line of most cybersecurity leaders into the technology function was a hindrance to their effectiveness and ability to create real change within their organisations. While there were indicators that suggested this hypothesis is true, our study found more significant challenges in other areas that would prove more impactful in the short-to-mid term if addressed.

The study was conducted with CISOs or their delegates in mid-to-large-sized Australian organisations. While we promised the respondents anonymity, the people who provided the data are respected and noteworthy individuals known to many in the cybersecurity community.

Our Executive Report highlights where the issues lay and the three key indicators for success that any organisation can start implementing today.
