We’re in an era of industrialized threats that are increasing in size, scope, and sophistication. Hackers are your organization’s strongest competitive threat. To protect your business, we must begin with a fundamental question: do you fully understand how you get from customer to cash?
From that, how do you establish an effective security program aligned to business risk? Understanding the relevance of an event or threat in the context of your business is more valuable than being able to run an asset compliance report. Metrics are meaningless unless prioritized by threats and vulnerabilities – risk – to your business. Security workflow – instrumenting, collecting, analyzing, understanding, and responding to events, all relies on having the right information at the right time.
Unfortunately, security teams often play second fiddle to audit and compliance and focused on just meeting contractual or regulatory requirements, or are hidden within IT and only consider technical risk. That simply is no longer adequate, and your board knows it. When your breach goes public, you have liability to your victims, your business stakeholders, the government and ultimately your investors.
So what’s driving your security decisions: audit and compliance or real-world business risk?
I can help move your CyberSecurity program from yesterday’s reactive, compliance-oriented model to a forward-looking, risk-focused approach. My driver is your security need – it’s not about the latest and greatest tool or service, it’s about protecting your business reputation and cash flow.
Your brand and your career are on the line. We need to move through the smoke, past the mirrors, get beyond the FUD, and address security as an industrialized problem that needs tailored holistic solutions to reduce business – not just IT – risk.
