Cybersecurity threats are dynamic and insidious, organisations therefore need to be agile in evaluating and modifying their cybersecurity priorities based on a sound risk management approach that factors in the latest intelligence and real-world incidents, and is informed by enterprise-wide lessons learned.
Understanding the capability of cybersecurity within an enterprise means comprehensively analysing the operational efficiency and effectiveness of actions taken; resiliency of the people/processes/technology in use; maturity of practices; gap analyses; total cost of ownership; and more, and doing it across the axis of risk.
While developing their cybersecurity strategy, organisations must consider standards, best practices, key performance indicators (KPI) and business goals.
A well-developed viable cybersecurity strategy, based on sound risk management practices, is critical to the defence of an organisation’s assets. The strategy and associated implementation plan identifies the steps necessary to ensure that resources are allocated across the organisation as effectively as possible. It is a crucial roadmap that translates these priorities into actions in order to protect the organisation’s most valuable assets.
