Ensure cyber efforts are laser-focused on business value and risk.
Over the last decade, cybersecurity best practices have matured. Organizations that have evolved in alignment no longer view cyber efforts as solely reactive; they seek to anticipate risks before they happen. They view cybersecurity as more than just compliance frameworks and checklists; it’s about managing cyber risk to the business. And technology doesn’t drive cybersecurity; business goals do.
Business goals and inherent risk must be at the center of every cyber conversation. This is a guiding principle for forward-looking businesses. Whether we’re business, technology, or cybersecurity leaders, without cyber/business alignment, we’re getting it wrong. And we owe it to our companies to do better.
