Today’s corporate leaders face multiple challenges, including the need to innovate in extremely competitive business climates, address highly dynamic regulatory and compliance challenges, and secure the enterprise against a wide barrage of new and evolving sophisticated threats. Security is a major consideration in the way that business and information technology systems and processes are designed, built, operated, and managed.
Organisations often take a bottom-up approach to security and continually build on top of their existing security investments. This technology-centric approach often creates an excessively complex and disjointed security infrastructure that is difficult to manage and prone to operational inefficiencies which can escalate IT costs.
The need to be able to integrate security with business functions and operations exists more than ever. A business-driven approach can achieve end-to-end security that supports business goals such as driving innovation and reducing organisational costs, as well as operational requirements to address compliance measures, protect against internal and external threats, and prioritise the security risk management activities that make the most sense for their organisation.
We can provide answers to the following questions:
- Does my security program support my organisation’s goals and objectives?
- Am I investing money in the right areas?
- Will my security program provide an adequate level of protection given the size and nature of my business?
- Am I getting the value I should expect from my investments in information security?
