In an increasingly digital world, the importance of cybersecurity cannot be overstated. Cyber threats pose significant risks to businesses, governments, and individuals alike. In light of this, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has taken a proactive stance to ensure that organizations are taking appropriate measures to combat cybersecurity breaches.
The SEC recently called on public companies to disclose more information about their cybersecurity practices. This call for action comes as a response to the growing number of cyber incidents that have affected businesses of all sizes, leading to financial losses and reputational damage.
