The threat landscaping is constantly changing. I believe that security has grown up to find its place and value in the business today. In talking with clients across industry verticals, we see that the CSO (Chief Security Officer) is being asked by business executives what is being done to combat these threats.
The CSO has to articulate to the business that information security has become a business enabler and is critical for organizations. It is important to explore information security from a business point of view with the premise that investing the time and resources needed for security risk mitigation produces excellent returns from a business perspective.
I am sure this sounds easy, but the difficulty is to be able to find ways of measuring the value of information security. It is key to ensuring that security investments yield suitable business returns across the enterprise.
Based on conversations with organizations, we see that many don’t understand the value of the information within their enterprise. At the business unit level, there is a lack of understanding about information risk. Security is not equal to compliance, but the reality in most organizations is that they are synonymous. Regulations are looked at as a necessary evil, but paint themselves as a solution to an ever changing problem.
