OECD’s digital security recommendation

The OECD has issued a recommendation to policymakers on digital security. Recently, the agency says, large-scale digital security incidents with potential economic consequences have increased in frequency and sophistication, in a context where the digital environment has become essential to the functioning of the economy and a key enabler for growth, wellbeing and inclusiveness. “To reap the benefits associated with the digital environment, stakeholders need to depart from approaching digital security risk solely from a technical perspective in isolation from broader economic and social considerations.
