In today’s organizations, cybersecurity needs to be a team sport. Neither the IT department nor the business side of the house can go it alone in the face of the cybersecurity challenge.
Our white paper, “IT and Business Management Roles in Cybersecurity,” will help organizations think more seriously and strategically about how to put together a winning team. We’ll analyze the current threat landscape, reveal how yesterday’s security approaches fall short, and equip you with newfound appreciation for what a sophisticated cybersecurity game plan entails—in terms of skills and specific job roles on a team. We will also share with you Cisco’s model of a fully functioning cybersecurity team.
In addition, we have accompanied this white paper with a “Quick-Start Planning Tool: Checkup for Your Cybersecurity Team Strategy,” which business managers and IT and cybersecurity managers can use as a systematic guide to tackle these meaty questions:
What assets are you trying to protect?
What are your threats and risks?
What are your rules and policies?
What controls do you have to protect you, and how do you know they are working?
What skills does your organization have, and are you hiring the right people?
What are you doing on a regular basis to keep up to date in your plan of attack?
