Cyber Security to Support Digital Transformation Goals

Consumers are demanding we offer outstanding user experiences and technology interfaces, and we need to strategize how we both safeguard and leverage ever-growing portfolios of data and systems to differentiate ourselves from our competitors. Yet, often our cyber security programs and business goals seem to be at odds.
How do we revise our cyber security mindsets to support digital transformation initiatives?
– Embed security into your culture, technologies, and processes
– Empower innovation and time-to-market through consistent security risk governance
– Assess the impacts, goals, and methods of likely cyber attacks and incidents
– Align IT and security professionals with business objectives and risk tolerance
– Prepare now for effective detection and response to reduce business impacts of incidents
