Cybersecurity and risk questions Gartner can help answer

The best way for a CISO to prepare for a major security incident is to make security investment decisions that will help achieve personal, functional and business goals, confirm that incident response plans are approved by management, review them periodically and test them once a year, and learn from incidents to strengthen future responses. 

CISOs should ensure they have implemented a necessary response plan that sufficiently mitigates harm to the business. They should focus their time and attention on preparation and response, and heighten their company’s overall security awareness.

CISOs can increase their overall effectiveness by proactively preparing their organization for a breach and focusing on their readiness and response. This will help them better meet the expectations of their board, CEO and C-suite peers.

AI TRiSM is a framework that supports AI model governance, trustworthiness, fairness, reliability, robustness, efficacy and privacy. It includes solutions, techniques and processes for model interpretability and explainability, privacy, model operations and adversarial attack resistance for its customers and the enterprise.

Develop a holistic, coordinated CPS security strategy while incorporating emerging security directives for critical infrastructure. Conduct a complete inventory of OT/IoT security solutions used within the organization, as well as perform an evaluation of standalone or multifunction platform-based security options.

A data loss prevention (DLP) program is an approach that combines defined processes, well-informed and trained people, and effective technologies to improve information security and protect business information from data breaches.

Organizations need to build digital solutions at the same time they construct a full Digital Risk Governance (DRG) framework. Sharing is required to go digital and digital is necessary for faster action.

Risk executives should focus on their preparation and response plans in order to increase their overall effectiveness.

The best way for risk executives to prove their effectiveness is to proactively prepare their organization for a breach, rather than scrambling to react once a breach occurs.
