Technological drivers like cloud, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) mobility, and Big Data have become deeply embedded into all operational aspects of the 21st century enterprise. This presents both peril and opportunity for the security of your operations as the old command-and-control strategies become increasingly ineffective.
Increasingly, the more perceptive security strategies understand that basic breach prevention is not the end game for securing the enterprise. Instead, security operations must fully integrate into the profit and growth driven process of the business as a whole. An enterprise that is resilient and focused on ensuring business continuity with minimal disruption of operations is more agile and at a competitive advantage. Security must be a business enabler and the strategy for security must move beyond mere incident prevention and mitigation and perform as a driver for growth.
