Security Alignment to Business Goals
The State of Risk Management Survey Report 2021 helps to realize that today's cybersecurity risks are way more business oriented (resilience, reputational & financial, operational) and focus on data breach prevention, minimizing the impact to business and ensuring business continuity. The other major significant discovery derived from above mentioned survey is in a way an acknowledgement that many organizations struggle aligning cybersecurity risks with business strategy.
Great security services and projects have failed tremendously, because of the lack of alignment between technical initiatives with business goals.
Security services are not just technical matters at Operational level. For the Board to truly understand the value of security services alignment to business, the technical aspects of risks and resources must be communicated in business oriented language to speed up decision making and understanding business value of the service.
It is very common to observe that monthly security reports are mainly technical. Naturally, the monthly reports are needed, however, not just as a service justification, but also as a crucial service driver. For instance, a SIEM report typically includes logs ingested, number of alerts, correlation rules activated, integrated sources, however, this kind of information is rarely correlated to business risks, severity, likelihood and financial impact as well as the proposed effective mitigation actions. Monthly reports are a perfect opportunity to meet with the business Board.
