It’s a time of immense change for security leaders. Even before the pandemic sent companies scrambling to make their networks for an at-home workforce, along with other business disruptions, security teams faced significant challenges. Threats and security risks have been constantly growing in volume and sophistication. The number of breaches continues to rise, despite close adherence to cybersecurity best practices. Security leaders are under increasing scrutiny from boards and executives who want more ROI for their security investments. Yet, teams often have difficulty measuring the effectiveness of security efforts and risk reduction programs.
In these volatile times – when security leaders face pressure to deliver results faster and with less resources – it’s no longer possible to rely on traditional cybersecurity best practices. As they examine their security programs and implement changes, organizations need new strategies, methods, and solutions that can deliver measurable results with less effort and fewer resources.

Cybersecurity best practices are the strategies, policies, tactics, and actions that are generally agreed to provide organizations with the strongest security posture and defense against cyber threats. The best practices for cybersecurity today include adopting solutions that deliver superior cybersecurity metrics as well as visibility into the expanding attack surface.
Cybersecurity posture refers to the ability of an organization to identify, avoid, and remediate risk posed by cyber threats, vulnerabilities, and relationships with vendors and other companies. Security posture is determined by an organization’s cybersecurity planning, strategy, technology, policies, and cybersecurity budget.
