Deloitte launches “Secure.Vigilant.Resilient.” approach to cyber risk to help complex organizations reap benefits of growth and innovation
|PR Newswire Association LLC|
Deloitte's Secure.Vigilant.Resilient. approach acknowledges that with perpetual change and increasing complexity, it is economically infeasible for organizations to be 100 percent secure. It remains critical to invest in cost-justified and risk-prioritized security controls, but it is equally important – if not more important – to focus effort on improving threat visibility and detection, and responding more rapidly and effectively to reduce the impact of cyber incidents. Secure.Vigilant.Resilient. efforts require strong executive guidance and governance processes, and the creation of an active defense culture throughout the organization.
Simultaneously, Deloitte announced it has changed the name of its Security, Privacy, and Resilience practice to
"Senior executives are flooded with news and information about the damages that cyber incidents can inflict, but this in itself doesn't help them move forward," said
"Our approach helps organizations gain confidence in their ability to innovate by helping them be better prepared for potential cyber incidents. Through a Secure.Vigilant.Resilient. program, they can embrace cyber risk management not as a necessary evil, but as a positive and an integral component of strategic planning that supports the achievement of their core mission and strategic objectives," Powers added.
The underpinning concepts for the framework are spelled out in a new point of view paper entitled, "Changing the game on cyber risk: the imperative to be secure, vigilant, and resilient." www.deloitte.com/us/cyberrisk
To get started, leaders of the organization need to understand the key threats prevalent in their industry and specific to their organization. By reviewing potential actors and their motives, they can establish program components that better prevent impact by known threats, and also be better equipped to anticipate what might happen in the future, and respond more nimbly when incidents occur.
