Digital-First SecOps: A CISO Perspective
Businesses of all types, and across all verticals, have gone digital-first. This shift enables many benefits, such as greater scalability and speed. But it also amplifies the security and compliance challenges that arise from digital systems. For CISOs, this shift amplifies the need to apply the same level of automation, speed, and business-wide accessibility for security that digitization has brought to other aspects of the business. In short, modern businesses need to adopt a digital-first approach to SecOps itself.
Identifying and implementing digital-first security solutions is one of the major tasks facing Chief Information Security Officers, or CISOs, today. The solutions are out there, but they involve more than the security operations (SecOps) tools that sufficed in a past era where only some systems were digitized. To secure the modern business, CISOs need to take a digital-first approach to SecOps itself.
What does that look like in practice? This eBook details practical ways to adopt a digital-first SecOps strategy. It breaks the process down into three main angles – tools, teams, and culture – and identifies what to consider within each of these domains when planning a SecOps strategy for a modern, digital-first business.
