Is your IT security actually secure?

  • It is too risky for CSOs to manage all parts of a cyber defense. Collaboration is the best security strategy.

  • An intelligence-based defense can help you better respond to potential threats, rather than just reacting to attacks.

“Are we secure?” someone asked me yesterday when discussing their company’s enterprise security. My initial response was, There is no silver bullet when it comes to security.” But the real question companies should be asking is, “Are we secure enough?” Businesses today are in a continuous state of risk. We have all heard that security is a journey and not a destination. In the current business scenario, security breaches are not just problems for IT, they represent major risks to the business.

Every organization needs a robust foundation of cyber security. There is a significant shortage of cyber skills in the market, and the security journey must evolve from a reactive to a proactive stage. By applying the security mantra, “protect, detect, and respond,” and by collaborating with a strong network security provider with the right proactive approach, you’ll be better equipped to help protect your company from breaches.

A proactive approach to security requires:
  • A deeper understanding of where your organization wants to go and how your security program can help you get there
  • An objective assessment of your current maturity and a vision of where it needs to be
  • Smart decisions about where to invest your limited resources
Does your current security help you act on intelligence? 

To protect from, detect, and respond to threats, your business security needs the right security edge that can help you act on intelligence. It is too risky for Chief Security Officers (CSOs) today to manage all components of a cyber-defense strategy. It is better to collaborate with a security provider that has the broad expertise to share the risk and to deliver simpler risk-based C-suite decisions. Security is a trade craft that requires the right amount of training and the experience implementing it. Make sure you implement an intelligence-based defense strategy that can help you make intelligence actionable.

Take a cyber-security maturity assessment for your organization.
