This month we explore how security has evolved into a core business function for organizations. In our featured article, Tony Sager (Center for Internet Security) explains how decision-making about cybersecurity risk competes in the domain of overall enterprise risk, a natural convergence that requires a modern notion of trust. 
CISOs and security leaders frequently find themselves in positions where they need to advance initiatives to various groups across the organization. Taking a page from Marketing 101, Tina Meeker (Sleep Number) reveals how the 4 Ps framework (Product, Price, Placement, Promotion) can help build credibility, trust and buy-in.
More than just an IT issue, information security extends to the viability and reputation of an organization. For security controls to be implemented in a way that is pramatic and supports the business, writes Judy Hatchett (Surescripts), information security leaders must have a seat at the table and regularly engage with business leaders.
In our June 29 webinar, join us as Mary Frantz – primary technical cyber expert in the Equifax, Yahoo and many other high-profile breaches – provides a product-agnostic look at the capabilities of enterprise SIEMs, what to look for, how to implement and use them effectively, and how they can benefit the entire organization – not just security.
