Enterprise Governance and Cyber Security

As threats to cyber security continue to create risks for organizations in every industry, enterprise governance is playing an increasingly important role in information security risk management.

The key to successful enterprise governance of IT security begins with strategy. Too often, organizations invest heavily in tools and solutions for governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) without first taking time to develop a strategy that is aligned with business goals. As a result, these technology investments offer minimal business value and leave the organization without a strong security posture.

Optiv can help. Our bench of security executives, consultants, practitioners and specialists provides expertise and insight to help organizations successfully evaluate threats, identify gaps, develop strategies and roadmaps, and allocate resources to improve enterprise governance and enterprise risk management.
