Cyber Strategy and Roadmap


Address the Human Element of Your Security Program

The Need to Be More Cyber Aware and Cyber Secure


Optiv’s Cyber Strategy and Roadmap offering helps you establish a holistic cyber strategy program that aligns with your business needs and risks. We include stakeholders across your organization, ensure you can measure and reduce cyber risks and provide you with options you can act on.




Cyber Is a Moving Target


The constant stream of news about high-profile breaches makes one thing abundantly clear – there’s always a risk that your business could be comprised. Threat actors are constantly evolving advanced technologies and sophisticated techniques to compromise enterprise networks. With new compliance standards and increased customer expectations in a fast-paced cyber world, planning for robust security safeguards to protect from potential attacks or breaches has never been more challenging.



Cyber Is Everyone’s Business


The impact of cyber attacks on organizations has elevated cyber to a critical topic of discussion at board meetings the world over. Executive members are keen to ensure applicable cyber risks are within the defined risk tolerance levels. Cyber security is the responsibility of everyone in your organization.



Identify What Matters the Most


To enable and understand existing cyber risks, one must first understand the critical assets (“crown jewels”) that need to be secured. It’s vital to protect these by prioritizing your response and recovery plans to respond to potential breaches that may result in the loss of customer trust, financial loss and/or reputational loss, among other consequences.



Cyber As an Enabler


Cybersecurity has long been considered a cost function for business to achieve their core objectives. Providing cybersecurity as-a-service requires a more integrated approach, and organizations are starting to realize its value as a driver of business objectives.

The Steps to Cyber Strategy Success


Our Cyber Strategy and Roadmap offering delivers a customized methodology and approach considering your organization’s priority objectives. By completing the following three phases, we’ll know what you need and the efficient way to protect what matters.

Threat Profiles


Threat profiles are industry and sector-specific and summarize the latest potential threat scenarios and the likelihood of threat actors launching a campaign against your organization. They also play an important role in anticipating and mitigating future attacks based on threat intelligence by identifying and monitoring crucial threat intelligence feeds.

Industry Benchmarks


We provide a comparative analysis of your organization’s cybersecurity budget, headcount, security capabilities and security governance structure against industry peers. This enables your organization to align with industry peers and strive for increased customer trust and potential growth.

A Business-Centric, Threat-Aware Cyber Program


By focusing on your organizational objectives and what you’re looking to get out of your cybersecurity program, we can give you actionable advice, so you’re more prepared – no matter what happens. In challenging times, reflect on how you are set up to succeed rather than what could have been done in the past. A robust cyber strategy that is aligned to your organization’s objectives and integrated across business areas enables the organization to achieve its goals and secure itself from the ever-evolving cyber landscape.
