Cybersecurity has never been more relevant than in the past year. With crippling ransomware attacks, and now Spectre and Meltdown, security and risk management leaders must agree on how to define and address risks and threats in a new digital environment. The mission of cybersecurity must evolve to accommodate these concerns.
Cybersecurity is one of the most misused terms in technology today and the misunderstandings that causes can create problems. CISOs, IT security and risk management leaders must agree on what cybersecurity means to address the risks and threats of digital transformation.
- Define and apply "digital security" as a term that reflects digital and cybersecurity risks of digital business initiatives.
- Incorporate the standard definitions into contracts with vendors throughout the organization's supply chain by delivering an agreed-on standard template for contracts and procurement.
- CISOs should review the cybersecurity definition yearly or as major business needs change through a combined business/technology governance team and change as needed.
- Propagate the definition throughout the organization via aggressive communications and awareness programs as part of a mandated cultural shift for digital business.
