In the face of increased ransomware and overall security incidents, weaving the fabric of trust throughout your organization is an opportunity for business differentiation. While the intricacies of each sector and business may vary, one thing reigns true: trust talks, and is key in empowering efficient workflow in every business dynamic.
So, where should you begin? The answer lies in establishing a trust-based cybersecurity program.
Security is often siloed. To have a truly holistic program your organization needs to approach its internal and supply chain security from a singular standpoint: trust. Facilitating a trustful security posture empowers your organization to align privacy, third-party risk management (TPRM), governance, risk, and compliance (GRC); and environment, social, and governance (ESG) business needs collectively.
Trust can be created and championed by the security team. Learn how to build trust and drive growth with this eBook.
In the wake of increased successful and high-profile attacks, ransomware incidents, and the newfound fragility of critical infrastructure systems, areas like GRC and third-party risk management are emerging as undeniably necessary components of instilling trust throughout enterprises. This includes a shift in focus to the importance of the individual and requires each of these areas to align with the pillars of an organization’s risk posture: security, compliance, and privacy.
Establishing trust-based cybersecurity means organizations must conduct thorough due diligence. This includes everything from identifying key assets and weaknesses in your security posture to understanding threats to your vendor ecosystem. This strategy will empower individual stakeholders to implement risk-based security measures into their day-to-day processes.
Siloed business units are not as effective as cross-team collaboration; each area must work collaboratively to facilitate organizational trust. This aligns goals and duties, allowing each facet of an organization to work toward a common goal, giving an organization the autonomy to proactively tackle industry-related issues and showcase dedication to its stakeholders. Business leaders working to build a trust-based organization should emphasize collaboration across the following business units:
Overall, it’s key that business units collaborate to address the growing challenge of protecting organizational and consumer data by strengthening trust through each of these workflows.
