Security Strategy and Planning

Defining security as a key business enabler

Your company needs a security and planning model that is a workable long-term solution. But managing security and privacy compliance – while still maintaining transparent governance – can be a huge challenge for many companies. You must have clear accountability and effective reporting while keeping your business running smoothly. Under increasing pressure to meet stringent regulatory requirements, businesses can no longer afford to take ad-hoc security measures. Your security strategy needs to be actionable, repeatable and reportable.

Companies must be able to define their risks and needs, and to think of security as a crucial part of their organization — as a key business enabler. And information security needs to be able to effectively communicate to senior management the importance of security’s role in the overall business.
