As organizations move to digital platforms, effective cybersecurity measures are key to protecting assets — including enterprise data, customer data, reputation, and intellectual property — and the viability of the operating environment. Protecting this digital environment, which encompasses infrastructure, applications, data, and control structures, is critical. To that end, effective cybersecurity programs begin by aligning the cybersecurity strategy with the organization’s business goals. This effort must include balancing risk with functionality and convenience.

Effective cybersecurity programs begin by aligning the cybersecurity strategy with the organization’s business goals.
The guiding light for this activity is a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy.
Deploying cutting-edge technology products doesn’t necessarily result in a well-protected environment. A triad of people, processes, and technology must be thoughtfully applied and orchestrated to truly achieve a reasonable level of cybersecurity protection. The guiding light for this activity is a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy, often captured in a three- to five-year roadmap.
Distilling your strategy into a formal plan with clearly defined goals and responsibilities will benefit your organization in several ways:
Alignment of the cybersecurity strategy with overall organization strategy
Prioritization of available resources, including budget
Clear balance of risk versus functionality/convenience for decision making
Integration of cybersecurity risk management with overall enterprise risk
Improved communication between stakeholders
