Build a Cyber Security Program


A well-developed Cyber Security Program will make both your life easier as well as everyone around you in your organization.

Your Cyber Security Program is probably the most important one in your arsenal. As a CISO you are expected to bring innovation to table of management, empower your users, think like a hacker and act against threats, bring information in front of management in a timely and professionally way, and at the end of the day you want to also go golfing carefree. Well, if you have a well designed, wholistic, and approved by senior management Cyber Security Program, going golfing will be an achievable task on you calendar.

A well written and approved Cyber Security Program will bring to light much more than risks or cyber threats. It must address the three pillars of security: People, Process, and Technology. Neither one is considered with higher value than the other two, emphasizing technology.

Many CISOs fall in that place of “I am the cyber go to person; therefore I should probably take a deep dive into technology to fulfill that expectation.” – Guess what? You cannot be more wrong. The best CISOs in the industry know how to hire and manage the cyber technology subject matter experts, whether as FTEs or contractors, while they, as a CISO, work with the users and management, to set the right processes in place and bring the value of cyber security through communication and collaboration with all business moving parts of the organization. A CISO that cannot explain in one sentence what it is that their organization is doing, selling, or trying to achieve, are doing something wrong.

A well-developed Cyber Security Program will make both your life easier as well as everyone around you in your organization.
