Strategy & Governance – Consulting

Aligning an organization’s cybersecurity strategic direction with its business goals is crucial to a successful cybersecurity program. This alignment facilitates the right balance between the business’ needs and being adequately protected against cyber risks.

As organizations increasingly link more and more of their operational processes to their cyber infrastructure, effective cybersecurity measures are key to an organization’s ability to protect its assets, including its reputation, intellectual property (IP), employees and customers.

Many companies believe that their investment in cutting-edge technology solutions mean that they are well protected from cyber attacks. However, it is not only a matter of effective defenses but also the people, the business and the organizational elements that come into play. An integrated approach is called for, tailored to your specific business needs and risk profile.

    Governance is the set of responsibilities and practices exercised by the board and executive management with the goal of providing strategic direction, ensuring that objectives are achieved, ascertaining that risks are managed appropriately and verifying that the enterprise’s resources are used responsibly.

    The architecture consists of business processes, information, data, application and technology architecture layers. Designing a good architecture effectively and efficiently realizes the enterprise’s and IT’s strategies by creating key models and practices that describe the baseline and target architectures. Defining requirements for taxonomy, standards, guidelines, procedures, templates and tools, and provide a linkage for these components. Improving alignment, increase agility, improve quality of information and generate potential cost savings through initiatives such as reuse of building block components.
