In a recent report, auditing giant KPMG identified the five most common mistakes managers make when trying to secure their organizations’ IT networks against cybercriminals.

The report asserts that company executives should exhibit leadership in cybersecurity with regard to allocating resources, governance and decision-making, as well as building an organizational culture in which everyone is aware of his or her responsibilities.

“Cybersecurity is a challenge for the leadership of many organizations. This, however, cannot be an excuse to divest responsibility to the ‘experts,’ ” said John Hermans, cybersecurity lead partner for KPMG.
