What are Security Outcomes?
Most businesses go from responding to one cyber security crisis to the next. It’s easy to get pulled into responding – especially when security budgets need to be constantly justified with one hand while you’re fending off attackers with the other.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Transforming from reactive to proactive and then to progressive outcome-based strategies, organizations can align cyber security with business goals.
Challenges and opportunities on Security Outcomes
Guest Speaker Laura Koetzle, Vice President and Group Director at Forrester, joined us at SPHERE23 to discuss how outcome-based security simplifies cyber security by investing only in capabilities that measurably deliver desired business outcomes.
Connecting security outcomes to your strategies
Most businesses are forced to be reactive rather than proactive when it comes to cybersecurity. This leaves your organization:
- Struggling to gain visibility into risk and incidents
- Constantly seeking skilled professionals
- Wasting time and resources
Focusing on security outcomes changes everything. Now you can:
- Connect your security to specific business benefits
- Get a complete view of your risks and security maturity
- Gain competitive agility
- Manage costs better
- Measure the value of your cyber security
