The communication breakdown between cybersecurity experts and managers at the companies they are supposed to protect is making it more difficult to create an adequate security regime at firms in the U.S. and U.K., a new survey shows. A poll of 1,321 IT specialists in the two countries found that more than half of U.S. respondents say information is often too technical for managers to understand, while more than 40% limit communication with their bosses to after a breach has already happened. "Finding meaningful ways to successfully bridge this communication gap is critical to broader adoption of risk-based security programs," the report says. "The onus for this effort clearly lies with IT security and risk professionals."
