The rules of engagement, however, change as one moves up the corporate ladder. How does a cybersecurity leader communicate to non-cybersecurity experts the value of a program and all the expense that goes along with implementing information security activities? What's the best way to ensure that optimal decisions for the business are made when push comes to shove?
