Tune in to the full episode — The Economics of Cybersecurity, with Lisa Washburn, Secureworks.
What You Will Discover:
✔️ How IT and security leaders can identify areas for investment. What people, processes, and technologies do you need to properly protect your organization? Consider different factors before taking the plunge.
✔️ Do an inventory of your people resources. Having enough people with the right skills isn’t the ONLY solution. Upskilling and outsourcing are the paths to workforce growth.
✔️ Reframe the security conversation. Security isn’t just an unfortunate necessity. Security leaders must gain mindshare from executives by showing how their initiatives can actually enable more business.
✔️ Every team should embrace the security mindset. Security shouldn’t be an afterthought but a priority. That means involving everyone in the company.
✔️ Security is a huge aspect of a company’s GRC (Governance Risk Compliance) strategy. It’s up to security leaders to coordinate their plans with GRC goals and requirements. Budgeting for security is justified for overall risk management.
✔️ There isn’t a secret formula for cybersecurity spending. Gain the results you want by collaborating with your board. Getting the right strategy takes a little finesse and a lot of understanding.
