ISMG’s Executive Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
The Road to Business-Driven Security
In 2017 alone, organizations worldwide spent in excess of $75 billion on cybersecurity. And yet still, senior leaders not only struggle to protect their organizations from ever-evolving threat actors – they also struggle just to understand the degree to which their security investments actually affect business risk.
Have you identified your organization’s most critical information assets and given them the security controls they require? In the event of a security incident, can your team put it into the right business context and respond as quickly as needed? Can you even identify users on your network and manage their access and entitlements?
If you’re looking for new strategies and solutions to understand and attain this emerging concept of Business-Driven Security, then join ISMG’s Tom Field for this interactive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering insight on how they have been able to help organizations evolve toward Business-Driven Security, including how to:
- Identify and protect what – and whom – matters most to the organization;
- Translate security incidents to measurable business risk;
- Lead this shift to Business-Driven Security and pick an appropriate starting point.
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Ben Smith, Field CTO for RSA.
