The rise in the widespread use of technology brought with it a rise in security problems and cybercrime

The rise in the widespread use of technology brought with it a rise in security problems and cybercrime. For hackers, the possibilities increased exponentially, along with the potential rewards. Cybercrime now permeates every facet of society and is for all organizations critically important to address. Independent of size or industry every business starts to take necessary precautions to protect their information systems and technology from unauthorized access, particularly if such access is made by individuals with malicious intent.

Some of the most pressing business challenges around physical and cyber security aspects are:

  • The lack of a cross-departmental physical and cyber security vision, strategy, and objectives.
  • Numerous complex physical and cyber security concepts and architectures that need alignment to increase security standardization and simplification (where to – and where not to – standardize).
  • Questioning if protection levels are proactive enough to detect and identify Insider threats.
  • Physical and cyber security is not adequate enough to mitigate risk or enable real-time decision making impacting business using security architectures, workflows, information analytics, reporting, measurements and rules.
  • Confusion over security prioritization of physical, information technology (services and processes), remote access, and cyber.
  • The lack of a Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) to perform emergency management required due to a physical or cyber security incident.
  • Ongoing efforts (Digital Workplace, moving to Cloud, IT modernization, and SMART Technology) are not thoroughly aligned with physical and cyber security efforts.
  • Physical and cyber security development paths and roadmaps need to be developed or updated.
  • Conflicts between the need for more effective and efficient Business Risk Management and the desire to reduce information technology costs (maximize value/cost ratio).
  • Not prepared for cyber Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks that could disrupt the company’s services indefinitely.

Other services which might be interesting in combination with the above:

  • We have data across 10 sectors and 52 different industries, categorized according to which practices are worst, best and outperforming practices. Therefore, we can benchmark you against these practices and come with detailed improvement suggestions of where and how you could learn from others, enabling you with best, industry and outperforming practices.
  • Knowledge worker analysis; identification of your knowledge workers (depending on industry, about 5-15% are core differentiating and core competitive knowledge workers). The rest are non-core knowledge workers, and therefore differentiating the security concepts adds no value.
  • How to go about security cost reduction.
  • How to go about Security Productization (advanced categorization and classification). This could be used to develop clean and simple:
    • Security as a Product (SaaP) concepts – can be used for Security product basket structure.
    • Security Product as a Service (SPaaS) concepts – simplifies overall construct and enhances service value delivered.
  • Develop a Security Business Case.
  • Security Change Management services.
