Our 2023 Cyber Workforce Benchmark Report reveals the real progress, challenges, and the ongoing journey cyber leaders face on the road towards comprehensive resilience.
To increase your cyber resilience today, here is a checklist of 5 items supported by this year’s report:
- Make cybersecurity a strategic Board and C-level priority: Making cyber a strategic priority means recognizing its importance and integrating it into the highest levels of the decision-making processes across an organization, including at the Board and C-level.
- Build a rock-solid cybersecurity culture across the workforce:
- Beware cybersecurity overconfidence or complacency: Seniority doesn’t necessarily mean readiness for threats. To stay current with emerging threats, staff of all experience levels need to continue their skills development so they have the knowledge and judgment to effectively respond to threats.
- Don’t be sporadic. Continuously exercise and prove capabilities: One-off cyber skilling “fire drills” won’t do. Leaders need to regularly and consistently conduct cybersecurity exercises to assess skills gaps and fill them before it’s too late.
- Ensure preparedness for both before, and after, an incident: Ensuring coverage across all of MITRE ATT&CK framework means establishing workforce preparedness for before and after the boom to avoid weaknesses in any particular area.
