When companies think about security and privacy, they often consider them after an incident. From phishing to malicious code attacks, identity theft to stolen data, threats to information are constantly evolving. But information security is about much more than that. It’s also about business performance and having an edge over the competition.
Having sound policies and procedures around security and privacy should be thought of first and foremost as a means to enable your business. Today, the information security function needs to play two pivotal roles: first, to provide a secure information environment that improves business performance; and second, to assist the organization in strategically and tactically addressing its governance, risk and compliance requirements.
