Cybersecurity Disciplined Capability Designs

Strategic intelligence based on critical thinking is the driving force behind the cybersecurity disciplined capability designing that is needed to meet the rigors of compliance.

Cybersecurity leadership is challenged to implement effective competencies. Staffing expertise, apt technology, and pertinent processes are necessary to the success of a cybersecurity capability. All three must be reflective of the unique mission of each organization. It is not enough to rely on the vendor community or compliance regulators to design our cybersecurity capabilities. Although essential starting points, they need to be transformed into reflections of the culture they mirror.
