- There's a high degree of consensus among enterprise technology executives about the nature of a step-change capability improvement required to make their institutions cyber-resilient.
- While institutions need to start acting to improve their capabilities now, there should be enhanced collaboration across the cyber-security ecosystem to get alignment on a broad range of policy issues.
- Progress toward cyber-resiliency can only be achieved with active engagement from the most senior business and public leaders.
