Abstract: While cyber security is an increasingly important topic for organizations globally, it is also a confusing one for both researchers and practitioners. A great deal has been written about cyber security, but there is comparatively little written about how to actually implement cyber security – specifically, who should actually do what. There also tends to be an assumption made that cyber security is simply something that the networking group will take care of, and is therefore put out of mind by most users and IT professionals. In this paper, we examine some of the suggested best practices for cyber security and suggest a framework for thinking about these practices. We also examine how cyber security tasks can be broken out by area of responsibility within an organization.
