    With nearly nine out of ten board directors and C-level leaders saying that they lack confidence in their organization’s level of cybersecurity and cyber attacks and data breaches are of grave concern, it’s time to realize that most organizations are looking at cybersecurity through the wrong lens. It’s time to shift the approach from a functional to strategic.

    Sharing insights gained from empirical review and industry experience, cyber experts Greg Witte, Senior Security Engineer with G2, Inc. and Doug Grindstaff, CMMI Senior Vice President of Cyber Security Solutions will explore why control level functional approaches to cybersecurity are inadequate due to the growing complexity of modern IT environments. They will also discuss the three critical questions board members should consider when tying cybersecurity to business strategy:

    Does your organization have a comprehensive list of cyber risks that is informed by your strategic objectives?

    Has your organization identified the necessary security capabilities to support your strategic objectives?

    Does your organization have the situation awareness and culture to build resilience?

    CISOs, CSOs and other security executives play a pivotal role in arming their boards with the knowledge and objectivity they need to understand the risks and to inform their strategic guidance and decision making. The ability to achieve business goals and objectives is tied to effectively managing cybersecurity risk and must be prepared to take an aggressive role in ensuring the connection of cybersecurity to business strategy.
