NEW YORK, Oct. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Data breaches hit everywhere: where we shop, bank, and even eat ice cream. As insider and outsider threats to personal data are increasing and evolving, data breaches are now a fact of doing business, adding complexities for chief information security officers (CISOs). As a result, CISOs are required to keep pace with current and future risks—hot topics discussed at the 2014 Advisen Cyber Risk Insights conference—determine if security incidents have escalated to breaches, and navigate and manage them efficiently and consistently. To meet these responsibilities and compliance requirements and to best protect data assets and consumer privacy, they must adopt new methodologies, strategies, tools, and processes. The CISO's Secret Weapon for Reducing Enterprise Risk, a whitepaper that was developed in conjunction with the CISO Executive Network and ID Experts, offers insights about how CISOs can better manage the complexities of security incidents and minimize enterprise risks. Security experts share their top 10 breach strategies:
- Adopt a top-down approach to risk management.
- Use governance as the masthead for risk management across privacy, risk, security, IT, and compliance.
- Layer your defense strategy.
- Incorporate solid detection and response capabilities.
- Look through the lens of enterprise risk.
- Allocate ample resources.
- Operationalize your incident response process.
- Analyze incidents.
- Determine incident root causes.
- Refresh training and education.
