How Are Organizations Planning For The Threats Of Tomorrow?
For the majority of organizations, cybersecurity tends to be reactionary in nature. Organizations large and small struggle to deal with the daily slew of new vulnerabilities, security incidents and responding to senior level concerns regarding media stories of corporate data loss. Rarely do organizations take the time to future-gaze, anticipate emerging threats and build necessary defenses into the cybersecurity strategy.
It can be difficult for chief information security officers or cybersecurity steering committees to visualize the range of threats and types of attacks that may lie ahead and how they could affect an organization’s unique threat profile. Organizations are constantly blindsided by threats they were not aware of, or worse, had failed to prepare for. Not to mention the lack of well-documented emerging threats with obvious business consequences.
Data integrity is relevant and necessary. In theory, an attacker could spread misinformation that gains instant credibility because of its trust in the source. Further, company performance could be seriously affected where decisions are taken that rely on the integrity of data.
PREPARATION IS KEY
Board members and senior executives must ask how the organization is identifying and planning for the threats of tomorrow. Effective risk mitigation of emerging threats relies on addressing challenges before they become another firefight.
