They have to – there is too much risk, both reputational and financial, to operate otherwise. Not to mention increasing regulations and more informed examiners.
In today’s world, information security needs to be a significant component of your overall business strategy and not just a part of your risk management program. The changing dynamic of the CISO role certainly backs up that theory.
At Rebyc Security, we are working with progressive companies and information security leaders to take a proactive approach to cybersecurity. If you have questions, we’re here to help.
