Most businesses, although they may place a lot
of importance on digital security, are overdue for a change in their overlying
approach to security awareness. How this change occurs directly relates to how
willing the organization and the individuals that make up that organization are
to adapt and rethink the current policies and security solutions. If everyone
agrees on the importance of digital security growing and adapting, why are
organizations and companies having such a challenge in implementing modern
security solutions options to address cyber threats? One phrase: return on
Think about every conversation taking place with
the stakeholders in your company. The driving factor of any decision within a
business, whether it relates to public relations, social media, or boosting
sales with new platforms, relates back to how this investment will result in a
positive financial return for the company in the short and long run.
For any organizational leader and decision-maker, cyber security incurs high costs in a way that a CRM system does not – new sales platforms directly bring increased profits to the company whereas cyber security doesn’t directly correlate with revenue. It’s these challenging conversations that have left IT departments around the world attempting to stay in front of the risk of inadequate cyber security. Cyber security is an ever-evolving field. Ill-intentioned people are becoming ever more skilled at exploiting dated cyber security measures and methods. The most challenging part of cyber security is that it’s impossible to know that yours isn’t up to par until it’s too late.
IT departments need to adapt the way in which they
market their security and privacy methods internally to stakeholders. The
traditional approach of marketing enhanced cyber security as digital insurance
against hackers or security breaches is no longer convincing enough in a time
when cyber attacks have become highly variable, increasingly frequent, and more
destructive to companies’ day to day activities. When marketing cyber security,
it has to be made clear that this portion of a business’s budget is no longer
an end-of-line expense but rather an essential piece to access effective
security systems and high priority for not only the IT department but the
business strategy as a whole in confronting cyber threats.
In short, businesses need to return to the
basics by establishing a culture of cyber security in which “security first”
thinking is the basis of all decisions and policies adopted or adapted. One of
the key shifts in business and cyber security relates to the massive move
toward cloud migration and cloud-based solutions for data analysis. Beyond the
surface level changes in data storage, architecture and application usage, the
additional and often ignored change when it comes to data breaches is related
to cybersecurity. A large number of digital security tools and cyber security
policies were developed and implemented at a time when a much greater amount of
company data was stored and analyzed on-site. These traditional and dated
digital security models aren’t enough as workloads are migrated to the cloud.
If your company has made the move to the cloud, the time for your company to
rethink its cyber security policies from the ground up is long overdue.
