The increased complexity of the IT environment, combined with increasingly sophisticated attacks and a rapidly evolving threat landscape, is causing organizations to invest more money in cybersecurity and start to focus on the impact of cyber threats and cybersecurity from a business perspective, according to a research report conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).
One of the report’s key findings is that in many organizations (96 percent), the traditional role of the CISO has expanded. As security concerns are integrated into the planning for new digital initiatives, CISOs are more often included as active participants in enterprise business discussions. By including CISOs from the beginning, enterprises can proactively balance security and performance with operational functions such as ease of access, reliability, and a positive user experience.
