Cybersecurity standards must be globally accepted, industry-led and recognised by the broadest community possible. With an increasingly complex set of requirements to safeguard cybersecurity, ICC seeks closer collaboration between business and government to ensure future developments related to a cybersecurity and the Internet do not splinter into differing approaches at local, national, regional and global levels.

ICC also leverages its worldwide reach to strengthen cyber capacity and expertise globally, sharing business recommendations and experience with intergovernmental organisations and relevant forums addressing cybersecurity risks and management.

Meanwhile, with a plethora of information available, it can be difficult for businesses to know where to begin when it comes to taking measures to reduce the risks of becoming a cyber-attack victim.

For businesses large and small, it is vital to be able to identify cybersecurity risks and effectively manage threats to information systems.

However, business managers, including executives and directors, must recognise that cyber risk management is a continual process with no end solution.

But improving cybersecurity is possible via a risk management process that puts heavy emphasis on management.

Leadership is crucial when it comes to taking action and ensuring information security best practices are adopted within enterprises.

That’s why we developed the ICC Cybersecurity guide for business, a pragmatic guide to starting a cybersecurity conversation between information technology specialists and company management.

ICC global digital appendix of cybersecurity resources was created as an evolving digital appendix of resources that serves as a living database and provides localized advice from standards of practice to technical standards. Universal references and frameworks are catalogued under ‘Global resources’, and then by country to ensure that the resource serves both, as a globally relevant tool, and a locally adaptable one.
