CISOs pursuing and driving a culture of Security by Design can play a crucial role as enablers of transformation.
In the face of mounting cyber threats, many organizations go on the defensive – and miss a golden opportunity to gain a competitive edge by putting enhanced cybersecurity and privacy at the heart of their strategy.
To make the shift to a culture of Security by Design, CISOs must embrace the commercial realities facing their organizations in a disruptive marketplace. And the rest of the business, from board level down, must ensure cybersecurity has a seat at the leadership table.
The shift is a shared responsibility: CISOs can – and must – engage more collaboratively with the rest of the business, while boards, C-suites and other business functions must commit to a closer working relationship with their cybersecurity colleagues. Only in this way can cybersecurity teams play a crucial role as enablers of transformation.
