SUPPORTING THE CISO FOR OVER 20 YEARS
"As CISO, if you don’t have a clear understanding of the threat actors and attacks paths that relate to your specific business, if you only have partial visibility of business information assets and no clear understanding of the impact of a breach, and if you don’t know where the edge of the business is and paths across it, then I fail to see how CISO’s are able to report the true level of Cyber Risk to the Board and deliver proportional risk treatment plans."
"With a bottom up focus on increasingly complex and costly technical mitigations, I believe the Enterprise Security & Risk functions needs to focus just as much resources on an effective method to gain visibility, model, describe, and understand the functions, structures and interrelationship of business & security components within the enterprise. Security Innovation Europe are uniquely positioned to provide that insight for the CISO." - Alex Port - CISO - Security Innovation Europe

Enterprise Cyber Security Strategy
The pace of digital Innovation and the disruption this introduces as businesses evolve is outpacing the ability for business strategy to adapt to Cyber requirements. This is especially true where;
The ability to properly understand and deal with all these elements is critical to an organisation’s success, so as not to negatively impact operations, finances or their reputation (commercially or with regards to protecting data).
Managing today’s risk means that Enterprises must now transform the role of Cyber within their enterprise risk function and address this cyber risk not as an IT problem but as a Business owned issue.
By implementing a Cyber Security Strategy, based on a known baseline of cyber control capabilities, with a defined Enterprise Security Architecture (ESA) Blueprint based on the business’ appetite for risk, allows Enterprises to effectively manage a dynamic threat landscape.
This approach delivers to the CISO an understanding of the true value of the Enterprise’s information assets as well as insight into the business impact of likely cyber events. This can now be clearly articulated to gain board-level support for a business aligned, risk based, proportional response.
Board level reporting now becomes understandable in terms of current and projected business risks, threat priorities and trends. RoI can now be clearly identified in terms of reduction in risk operating costs. This is supported by enhanced security controls to enable each line of business and IT function to address current and future risks, understand threat priorities and consider Cyber Security by Design embedded as part of the business change function.

Enterprise Security Architecture Blueprint
With CISO’s having to report measurable ROI to the board, an essential step in developing an effective and agile Enterprise Cyber Security Strategy is to develop a reference Enterprise Security Architecture Blueprint.
Our pragmatic approach to developing a Blueprint is to use an agile methodology aligned to frameworks such as TOGAF and SABSA. The blueprint process will deliver a set of representations, Artefacts in EA speak, that describe the function, structure and interrelationship of the security components within the environment.
These artefacts capture the business context, the What, Why, How, Who, Where & When which defines the business landscape. We identify business and technical information assets, the value to business owners and utilising contextual threat
