"Business leaders need to realize that their dependence on IT is the same as they would depend on a truck that's carrying their equipment from factories to the market," Sarkar says.
He says translating a regulatory compliance requirement into business as usual is very complex, but if leaders "focus on business first, and have everything that the business needs come up from a cybersecurity perspective," the process will be a lot easier.
He shares advice on building a culture that understands that cybersecurity is a business issue.
