MIT CISR Research Poll: New Ways of Working in the Digital Era
BYOD, social media, data security risks, empowerment, open workspaces, flexible work schedules, collaboration tools, global teams, remote workers, mobile—traditional work arrangements are under siege. The call to re-imagine the way we work is becoming louder as we learn the demands of the digital economy and the changing expectations of our employees.

What can be done
MIT Sloan has started a new consortium, working with industry and government, specifically to deal with the important managerial, organizational, and strategic issues of cybersecurity. Known as (IC)3 (pronounced “IC cube”), the Interdisciplinary Consortium for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity is inspired by and modeled after MIT CISR, but designed for the needs of CSOs, CISOs, and CROs.
Founded on two decades of cybersecurity research at Sloan, (IC)3 is developing models, methods, processes, and techniques for cyber-risk analysis and ROI, cyber-safety analysis, process improvements, cyber incident prevention, and simulation of cybersecurity resilience.
Please pass this on to the appropriate people in your organization. This advice might be helpful:
Boards that choose to ignore or minimize
the importance of cybersecurity …
do so at their own peril.
