In a world of accelerating and intensifying digitalization, cybersecurity is becoming a competitive driver. More than a shield that protects intellectual property, innovation, and people, security is a foundation for building digital trust. With cyber attacks on the rise and remote working exposing an organization’s security vulnerabilities, data breaches and cyber intelligence have transcended the CISO’s interests, garnering the executive management and the board’s attention.
The evolving cybersecurity ecosystem
With high-profile cyberattacks making the headlines and increased network security vulnerabilities with vast numbers of people working from home for the first time, newfound vulnerabilities and sophisticated bad actors are causing many to reassess their organizations in the wake of stricter cyber laws and shared accountability.
It’s said that the best defense is a good offense, and the same philosophy applies to cybersecurity. Data breaches happen when security is perceived as an IT responsibility and not a shared organizational responsibility.
From shoring up your digital defenses to tracking cyber risks to building a more cyber-resilient organization, the challenges are many. Over the past three years, nation-state cyber attacks have changed, requiring more collaboration and coordination to keep sensitive information, people, and systems safe.
