Effective security is multi-dimensional. It requires integrated solutions and a deep understanding of the interconnected nature of risk.
Protecting your assets, systems, and people is a key leadership responsibility. With the increasing complexity of business and government, it's critical that security takes an integrated approach. This way you never miss a piece of the puzzle (effectiveness) and implement only the right security controls (efficiency).
The importance of staying one step ahead of developments in cyber is paramount for security today. Transformative technologies demand constant vigilance to achieve the confidence and resilience necessary for progress. Understanding the interconnectivity of cloud, IoT, AI, and other emerging technologies will help to ensure the security of your systems.
Operational Technologies are both highly specialised and highly targeted, so managing the threats to these systems is essential. Ensuring your systems, workforce, suppliers, business units, and processes are expertly monitored and assessed is vital. Their resilience is only as good as the weakest link.
A clear and robust protective security strategy avoids reactive and expensive decisions. Securing your reputation is a key to ensuring both operational and financial prowess. Being prepared and capable of managing, and preferably avoiding crises is essential.
