Effective cyber security is a non-negotiable requirement of being in business. Executive management must take charge and not rely on those who lack the authority, accountability and resources to enforce compliance.
38North supports cyber security programs by building and evolving an efficient governance planning strategy that establishes the proper authority and accountability. We leverage our understanding of your organization’s mission, people, processes and technologies to develop a governance program that aligns with your culture and mission.
This approach ensures your cyber security governance structure and associated practices empower your management team to make consistent and understandable decisions about: investing in security measures; aligning cyber risk management with enterprise risk management; and managing your organization’s cyber security posture.
What is governance?
According to the IT Governance Institute, governance is the set of responsibilities and practices exercised by those responsible for an enterprise (e.g., the board and executive management in a corporation) with the goal of providing strategic direction, ensuring that objectives are achieved, ascertaining that risks are managed appropriately and verifying that the enterprise’s resources are used responsibly.
