SECURITY

Is Your Security Practice Aligned With Business Outcomes?

Security is now a top priority for businesses worldwide. One of the highlights of my work at Splunk is when I host Splunk’s CISO Customer Advisory Board meetings with security leaders representing Fortune 500 and mid-sized enterprises from all industries. These strategic meetings focus on top of mind issues for CISOs and key market trends. 

An ongoing challenge for CISOs is to align security with business outcomes and prove its value, while effectively addressing the modern threat landscape.

Key Findings From CISO Discussions

Security continues to be a top priority for businesses worldwide, driven by the challenges posed by digital disruption and the continuously expanding threat landscape. Well architected security is regarded as a strategic advantage and security executives are adopting risk and operational-driven metrics to communicate and gain mindshare with corporate boards.

The role of the CISO is gaining in profile, expanding beyond IT and security technologies, and is becoming more strategic. Aligning security with business outcomes, while handling corporate velocity, key innovations, the skills shortage and budgets, is still a work in progress. 

There is a shortage of tools and techniques to develop strategies to align security with corporate and business goals. CISOs are looking for their security suite to help with alignment using measurable and actionable metrics.
