Cybersecurity Governance: Five Reasons Your Strategy May be Flawed – and How to Fix It

As threats to cyber security become increasingly ominous, sophisticated and unpredictable, CIOs must address risks ranging from denial of service attacks to natural disasters to disgruntled employees. Global organizations must also manage complex networks of service providers and scores of third-party suppliers, many of whom have access to customers, sensitive data and critical technology.

In this environment, many organizations struggle to maintain the continuous vigilance and end-to-end visibility across the entire service delivery chain that is essential to a viable cybersecurity strategy.

  • Balancing global and local requirements
  • Managing data
  • Responding to change
  • Applying relevant metrics
