CYBER SECURITY CULTURE
Cyber security has rapidly emerged as one of the top priorities for the Kayndrex Foundation. We rely on the Internet for organisational purposes. From online communications to web services, as well as data storage in the clouds, it seems like nearly everything is dependent on computers and the Internet. This reliance has spawned a dramatic uptick in cyber security efforts.
Our Cyber Policy mitigates risks as much as possible. It encompasses detailed procedures for the safeguarding of current systems. The policy’s strategy like every other Kayndrex Foundation strategy or policy, was designed with posterity in mind.
Our security leaders need to justify security investment and acquire budget to protect the Foundation and its subsidiaries from the risks that could affect the future of the organisation. By investing in tools and personnel, and being transparent with regard to how the Foundation protects data, the organisation can actually bolster credibility and trust amongst prospects and stakeholders.
Evidence is a key component of communicating cyber security ROI, but what is most important is applying the right proof points and quantifying specific threats and overall risks for the Foundation. Instead of applying general statistics of overall risks, our security leaders can apply security tools to calculate the potential exposure of the Foundation itself based on organisational data. Applying data that is more specific to the organisation will make the risk more tangible and the need for a solution more urgent.
Cyber Security Culture
Policies and procedures that ensure good security habits can be seen as an advantage to personnel productivity. These strategies assist everyone, irrespective of department of level of authority, comprehend the threats and responsibilities regarding security, and how each personnel play a vital role.
One major benefit of a positive security culture is that it creates in-house motivators who can demonstrate the value of cybersecurity. It will also empower security-aware personnel to become the Foundation’s greatest cyber security asset. Getting personnel invested in security contributes to overall data protection and cybersecurity objectives.
Ultimately, communicating the value of cybersecurity depends on translating cyber threats into organisational threats, and making security a guiding principle for the Kayndrex Foundation. With possibilities and proposals related to remote operation becoming the new normal for the Foundation, it is vital that we engage all personnel in shared cyber security awareness.
