As a result of pandemic from COVID-19many organizations were not technologically, operationally, or strategically prepared to meet the demands of enabling remote access and allow employees to work from anywhere.
And it is that, the adoption of technologies such as computing cloud, companies enable their employees to be more productive and mobile than ever. CISOs (Chief Information Security Officers) can help organizations become more agile by gaining a holistic view of your strategy cyber security work from anywhere.
That is why you will see below 3 WFA Strategies that can help organizations become more agile, resilient and secure, according to Jaime Chanaga, Fortinet Field CISO for Latin America and the Caribbean.
Maintain cyber resiliency in the event of cyber attacks
First, CISOs need to ensure that their cyber security strategy for WFA is focused on building cyber resiliency and that it is easily understood and adopted by all employees.
Cyber resilience refers to the ability of an organization to continue operations after a cyber attack, and this capability is neglected in most cyber security planning and implementations.
CISOs must have a holistic view of your organization’s cyber security, focusing on people, process and business direction to achieve cyber resilience.
It is possible to have WFA solutions that are safe and easy to use for all employees. Organizations that are more agile and have a WFA cybersecurity strategy combined with a zero trust strategy they will increase their organizational resilience to cyber risks.
For increase resilience with a cybersecurity strategy for WFA, CISOs should consider the following:
– An approach based on risk to have an agile workforce.
– Use architecture for modern WFA to use artificial intelligence Y machine learning.
Have a cybersecurity mesh
Second, organizations today need a cybersecurity Mesh, which is a cybersecurity mesh platform that enables you to better visualize your true risk posture and respond more quickly to current and future cyberthreats.
Organizations with an integrated cybersecurity platform that combines cybersecurity tools and solutions can quickly see the relationships between assets, threat intelligence, vulnerabilities and incidents.
A cybersecurity mesh platform helps CISOs prioritize your efforts and understand where to make changes to your cybersecurity strategy.
Always have the WFA as a strategic priority
Ultimately, creating a cybersecurity strategy for WFA requires alignment between security and the business.
CISOs need know and understand the operations and business objectives of the organization to better protect them. The organization needs to understand how CISOs and security strategies can enable new ways of working without compromising security or performance. WFA is both a business opportunity as a cybersecurity challenge for organizations.
CISOs should develop a cybersecurity strategy for WFA that focuses first on support business objectives.
A holistic strategy will also introduce innovation and operational efficiencies through emerging technologies, including automation, AI, ML, and big data analytics.
