The role of the CISO in cybersecurity by design.

Cyber Security

Cybersecurity by design is more than a slogan or marketing catchphrase. I believe firmly that it is an essential ingredient in securing the success of your organisation’s digital transformation.

As organisations replace legacy applications with newer technology, securing these technologies must become a priority. The CISO plays a crucial role in masterminding this transformation. The CISO is required to transform the cybersecurity by design “concept” into a “process”.

So what precisely is required of the CISO? Proficiency in governance. Technical control of the organisation. A holistic understanding of the digital security landscape. Most importantly, the CISO must ensure that cybersecurity by design is articulated and embedded into the foundations of the organisation’s technological strategy, forming the bedrock of digital transformation.

A far cry from simply selecting which antivirus software to implement within the organisation.

Ensuring that security control systems are built during the design phase will protect your organisation’s operations and reputation in the long run.
