Ensuring robust cybersecurity in cloud computing is about more than deploying technologies and creating security policies. It’s also about creating a culture among employees that makes protecting digital assets second nature in their day-to-day work. 
C-level business executives, in collaboration with chief information officers (CIO) and chief information security officers (CISO), have a pivotal role to play in creating that culture. It’s beneficial for the organization and can help build and maintain trust with customers and business partners. If you’re looking for ways to make your organization more secure, keep these five things in mind. 
Executives can foster good security hygiene by highlighting and modeling best behaviors and creating a culture around them where cybersecurity is everyone’s business. In other words, we should “walk the talk.” The C-suite must personally prioritize cybersecurity and go the extra mile by being aware of and demonstrating secure practices in all their daily actions, like using strong passwords and multifactor authentication. If you take shortcuts around security policy, so will your employees. 

User education and behavior are critical for the safe use of cloud-based products and services. Executive leadership — ideally, the CEO — should send regular messages through emails or corporate newsletters about the important role cybersecurity plays in maintaining the health of the business. As businesses digitize their operations, physical barriers to inadvertent data leakage disappear, making it all the more important to establish secure digital barriers. 

Maintaining robust cybersecurity in cloud computing is equally about cultural transformation. Executives must lead this transformation by articulating clearly and regularly that a strong security posture that applies best practices in cybersecurity is an ongoing, long-term goal of the organization and fundamental to business success.
