Make a Long-Term Commitment1
Securing your organization is an ongoing effort. It requires professional subject matter experts, a committee of stakeholders representing different lines of business, executive leadership and an exhaustive risk assessment to determine where to strike the balance of securing business processes while maintaining productivity. Security is not a destination. It is a constant discipline of due care and due diligence over time.

Stay One Step Ahead of Threats
The threat landscape today is broader and gets more fluid every day. An effective security policy should be measured and reevaluated regularly to ensure that the solutions and policies that are put into place can adapt to a constantly changing environment. Regular assessments of where you may be vulnerable are now table stakes.
Get All of Your People On Board
But it is not just about technology and a team of security professionals. Training and awareness for your employees and executives is critical. Your employees can be either your biggest risk or your best defense, but they don't know what they don't know. One end-user response to a spearfishing email or the use of a USB drive infected with malware on your network connected devices can lead to disaster and catastrophic loss2 for your organization.
