Another year comes to an end and it’s time once again to assess your IT security. Unfortunately for the CISO, while the rest of the IT team is already dreaming of a white Christmas and pretending to be productive, you need to look back and see if there are any serious reflections that need to be made. If your company has survived for a year with nary a cyber threat or attack, great! but that doesn’t mean you can rest on your laurels.
New Years resolutions are promises that always end up getting broken, which makes it a perfect checklist to keep CISOs on their toes. Technology will evolve and your organization will change (hopefully for the better) but the best practices to guide you on the right direction will stay the same. Keep this checklist nearby for a quick reference guide.
