The context in which modern organizations find themselves calls for a change in our thinking about what exactly “cybersecurity readiness” means.
The threat landscape demands that business leaders consider the total culture and mindset shift necessary to close gaps that enable breaches. The fallout from every breach and ransom goes beyond the purview of IT or security teams. Yet many leaders still fail to recognize that cybersecurity is a business problem, not a technology one. It calls for close, persistent attention from everyone in the organization as well as from the security providers and partners outside it.
To be effective, our approach needs to go beyond tactics and point products. Expecting IT or security teams to handle the problem, or spend their way out of it, simply doesn’t work. As the news reminds us daily, the cost of failure is too high to ignore.
