Cyber security is the top concern of business leaders, and the area where leaders feel their knowledge is most lacking, according to research conducted by events and technology company GDS Group.
According to senior leaders at the 300 global companies polled on behalf of Meet the Boss, an online roundtable platform and subsidiary brand of GDS Group, cyber security remains their top priority. The research also reveals that AI and automation are the least important topics for IT leaders right now, despite the subject being classified by board-level respondents as a ‘very high priority’.
In its inaugural Business Technology Barometer survey, GDS anonymously polled over 300 Meet the Boss event delegates at VP and director level or above from major global organisations, of which 150 were IT leaders specifically. The research was independently conducted and analysed by Boost Evaluation Limited.
