The Secret to Creating a Cyber Risk-Aware Organization
Vice President IT Operations,
The rapidly changing business environment is also exposing companies to more cyber risks. The explosion of interconnected devices, adversaries’ hunger for “big data” analytics, and the outsourcing of critical business functions are just some of the forces that are making companies more vulnerable to attack. Company leaders are tasked with striking a difficult balance between keeping up with their competition and defending against escalating threats. But many executives are unclear about what this really means, or what role they play in the whole cyber risk management framework.
In order to manage a complex challenge like cybersecurity, an organization must be able to collaborate across disparate functional areas—including defense, prevention, detection, remediation, and incident response. Such coordination requires that company leaders openly share their expertise, agree upon priorities, and ensure that security efforts are aligned with business objectives.
In this presentation we will discuss: why current awareness practices don't work; the value of evidence-based awareness; and how to benchmark awareness across business units.
