Securing Our World, Together
Category : Thought Leadership
The Infosec community has been battling threats for a long time now; you’ve probably witnessed the world has been going through tremendous security technology developments in the last two decades — harnessing invention power to build a plethora of offerings available to protect against cyber security threats — yet, the truth of the matter is that the world consistently fails to protect itself; we’ve seen it happening lately with the WannaCry outbreak and previously with several other outbreaks that had a massive impact worldwide – in the current pace Cybercrime will cost businesses over $2 Trillion in losses by 2019.
There’s a clear dichotomy between the worldwide available security offerings and the status of security globally. One would have thought that the security advancements in cyber security would help make the world a safer place and reduce the number of security breaches year on year, however the distinct opposite phenomenon is happening — the increasing number of data breaches make that clear!
The Five Elements of Cyber Security Resilience
Security is a profitable business, hitting $75 Billion in 2015 and predicted to hit $170 Billion by 2020; The Infosec community has got money, but the world is yet not secure — the dichotomy will get more apparent and it’s hard to admit, but so far the Infosec community hasn’t helped deliver true & complete security to the world.
One might say that adversarial tools, tactics and procedures evolve over time thus creating a never ending problem to solve, however we’d like to challenge that thinking – our analysis shows that resilient businesses have five fundamental key elements that need to be kept healthy and balanced to resist breaches and assure their resilience:
- Price (Budget) – The business should have the right budget size and source security for the right price to bring in efficient security solutions, as well as the human expertise required to effectively resist threats
- Visibility – The business is advised and has holistic and accurate visibility on its security posture and security incidents in direct relation to its risk exposure
- Human Intelligence – The business has cumulative security experience of human capital that can allow it to prioritise, contextualise and resolve security events effectively
- Availability – The business has the human resources available to handle security projects, as well as security incidents
- Involvement – The business knows its limit and acknowledges that help might be needed on certain security matters and involves an external party that can advise on them
