Cyber resilience: 4 key principles for new businesses
Merely relying on a tool is insufficient; a combination of process, people, and technology is necessary. Here are key principles to guide you:
- If a concept merits investment, executives should dedicate time to consider and mitigate risks. Establish a framework to identify major risks and mitigation measures, keeping future growth and user experience in mind.
- Forward-looking companies view cybersecurity as a core element of their business architecture. They seek external expertise to accelerate delivery and coordinate controls, ensuring cyber experts closely collaborate with the business.
- The role of the parent company in cybersecurity varies based on leadership engagement, crossover potential, and priorities. A collaborative approach is ideal, exceeding established risk and security standards while leveraging parent company resources when appropriate.
- Embed risk management and cybersecurity from product ideation to final delivery. For tech-based companies, adopt DevSecOps principles, integrating security testing at every stage of software development. Tailor tools for specific operational focus areas to protect key investments.
