Organizations are seeing a spike in privacy and security incidents and it is becoming clear that manual processes just isn’t adequate. Privacy and security professionals are turning to automation to help tackle the volume and complexity of these incidents. A recent whitepaper in conjunction with the CISO Executive Network outlines how leading CISOs from all industries are turning to automation and software as a secret weapon for reducing their risk.
“Privacy and Security events happen to the best of organizations. Business and data move at lightning-speed, and CISOs have to not only keep pace with current risks, but anticipate future dangers. Given the heightened risks of today’s data breaches, CISOs are being challenged by executive management to think beyond threat containment to risk management for the enterprise. They are turning to new tools and processes to meet their new responsibilities and compliance requirements.”
In today’s world, staying in compliance with the complex and ever changing web of state and local breach notification regulations is not just complicated, but time consuming. And security professionals are expanding their sphere of influence to include not just the technical side of incident response, but also the privacy and compliance aspects that are part of the overall profile of enterprise risk associated with privacy and security incidents.
