Company data is always at risk from various sources, whether it’s an employee’s accidental mishandling of sensitive data or a malicious external attack. Confidential data can be stolen, lost or destroyed, causing irreparable damage to business operations and customer trust. Protecting your company’s sensitive information and intellectual capital is a critical security objective for your organization.
Establishing a security strategy that is forward-looking and designed to address the future security needs of your company is the first step. Not only does a security strategy define directionally how your organization will invest its limited resources, it aligns funds to the highest value efforts to address the core needs of your business. A security strategy can be broad and cover the overall security direction of the company, or focused in a particular area such as identity management or governance, risk and compliance.
Problems of Traditional Risk-Based Approach
Most organizations are “littered” by security point solutions deployed as reactions to events as opposed to a proactive, effective security strategy. These traditional risk-based approaches primarily focus on risk mitigation activity and do not address the evolving business strategy of the organization or drive the alignment necessary to ensure success. Nor do they fully justify the significant investment required. Companies can perform a risk-based assessment by analyzing events, probabilities and impacts, but this approach represents only a portion of an overall security strategy.
