Bringing business leaders to the table

One of my focus areas is communicating cyber risk in business terms that business leaders can understand and operationalize. We at GCG are effective at this because we provide the data points and inputs business leaders need to evaluate investment and mitigation strategies as they relate to cyber security. At the end of the day, the onus is on us as security practitioners to engage our leaders and executives and bring them back to the table. I believe that business leaders want to have more touch points with the security team, but the communications barrier can be too high. Once we lower that barrier, we can work together to solve complex and difficult issues.
