How to Determine the Right Cyber Strategy for your Business – Doug Hammond

Doug Hammond, Chief Information Security Officer – Inland Revenue

During Doug’s workshop at the CIO Leaders Summit he Cyber Security risks, he raised points on how although organisations have very similar security threats their strategy for managing these risks can and should vary widely. This is because each organisation will have a different risk appetite, the financial and reputational consequences of a security breach will be unique and their current Cyber Security maturity will differ.

In essence, each organisation needs to first understand what their current starting point and target is and quantify the risk they are trying to manage and use this to determine their Cyber Security Strategy.
