The Rise Of The Business-Aligned Security Executive
A commissioned study of more than 800 business and cybersecurity leaders worldwide conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Tenable reveals:
Fewer than half of respondents regularly consult their executive counterparts when developing business or cybersecurity strategies, a disconnect that persists even during concerted efforts such as an official COVID-19 response plan.
With the rise of distributed work, and the growing adoption of cloud, mobile and IoT devices, security organizations require new tools and processes to comprehensively assess cyber risk beyond the traditional IT perimeter.
Few security organizations use threat metrics that speak to business risk, exposing a need for new reporting practices that can better align cybersecurity programs with business objectives and industry benchmarks.
Today’s digital business requires a new security approach focused on both understanding the current risk posture and predicting the greatest threats to the business.
