As the global crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, it is critical that Cyber Security & Risk Management leaders revisit their strategies, plans, and tactics.
In addition to considering the most likely scenarios that their organizations may face in the coming months, they need to account for the changing threat landscape.
As leaders and practitioners, we all face certain limitations related to our inability to predict exactly how the situation will develop in each geography, and to identify precisely how each of our respective industry sectors and organizations will be impacted.
It is also difficult to predict the duration of the crisis, and to identify what the long-term impacts will be across each organization’s business operating environment.
With all of this uncertainty, and the accompanying disruption to normal business operations and plans, we have a number of tangible, actionable, and impactful recommendations for ways in which Cyber Security & Risk Management leaders may be able to continue to advance, evolve, and strengthen their Cyber Security and Risk Management programs, even in the face of difficult and prolonged crisis situations.
