Cybersecurity – A Comprehensive Approach to Balancing Risks & Rewards
Key Considerations From CEO Prioritization to TSCM / Cyber TSCM Inclusion
Ask your CIO or CISO if your company is winning the cybersecurity war, and the reply may not be the confident, positive affirmation the CEO or the Board of Directors wants to hear. Why? Information security professionals know the cybersecurity war cannot simply be “won”. Maintaining corporate cybersecurity posture is a constant battle. The identity of attacker(s), the nature of the attack(s) and the weapon(s) used constantly change. To be effective, corporate cybersecurity initiatives must address the variability of the threats, and evolve as the attacker(s) and their tactic(s) change.

In this article, a corporate counterespionage and TSCM / Cyber TSCM expert addresses the need for a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity, with consideration of the risks and rewards of internal and external stakeholders.
