Every business relies heavily on technology to execute its most critical business processes and generate value for its customers. This digital dependency cuts across all critical infrastructure industries—and the same holds true in the public sector, where agencies rely on technology for mission success. Each day, however, the attack surface that hackers can exploit expands as the world grows more interconnected. These trends are creating countless opportunities for advanced adversaries to steal proprietary information, manipulate data, and disrupt critical operations. Business and government leaders know cyber threats are more dangerous than ever, and yet their enterprises still make the mistake of treating cybersecurity like an information technology problem.
All too often, cybersecurity strategies are not grounded in business or mission risk. Instead, they are based on security control best practices and the acquisition of costly, duplicative security tools. This approach to cybersecurity fails to counter advanced cyber threats and wastes finite resources. Further, this approach makes it harder for cybersecurity leaders to demonstrate value within their organization and to devise defensible investment strategies.
Equally protecting all your organization’s operational and technology assets is not a practical option in today’s connected environment: Some assets are so critical they must be protected with a risk-based defense strategy. Allocating resources in response to a cyber incident or an audit vulnerability finding may solve short-term challenges; however, taking a reactive approach to cyber risk management is costly and ineffective in the long term. Business and government cybersecurity leaders must shift to a proactive mindset and come to a shared understanding of the relationship between critical assets and costs.
In addition, leaders need defensible, data-driven analysis to provide assurance that their cybersecurity and risk management programs are protecting their most critical assets, accepting risk within the organization’s appetite to enable objectives, and delivering value for the whole enterprise. If cybersecurity outcomes start falling short of business and mission needs, leaders must be able to quickly identify shortcomings, refocus priorities, and reallocate security spending with confidence.
