The Big Picture: Developing a Holistic Cyber Strategy



Cyber Strategy Body Image

And that’s just for starters. The modern enterprise has to keep a lot of balls in the air, and by the way, cybersecurity and digital transformation (DX) probably aren’t even core competencies.


Hi. We’re Optiv. We help nearly 6,000 organizations in dozens of industries (including 73% of the Fortune 100) break down silos, streamline internal and external communications, get the right people in the right conversations at the right time and craft think-forward strategic partnerships that position them at the center of the big picture. Let’s talk.

What is Cyber Strategy?


Cybersecurity strategy is an iterative process that aligns information risk management with organizational objectives. By managing, mitigating and reducing digital/cyber risk, the strategy promotes the business's overall success.
Most organizations revisit their cybersecurity strategy at least annually. It’s also essential to review and update strategy when the cyber risk landscape changes (with the emergence of new threats or regulatory requirements, for instance) or the business shifts its objectives.

Maximizing Growth and ROI with an Effective Cybersecurity Strategy

We’ll collaborate on a cybersecurity strategy that drives better business outcomes through targeted services, building on deep experience in security, governance, risk and compliance (GRC), enterprise resilience, digital transformation (DX), cloud, analytics, automation, IoT and more. We’ll explore how a full-bodied risk strategy can grow your business and boost ROI.
Focused engagements and programmatic transformation start by understanding where you are  and where you want to go.
