October 2019

As digital transformation becomes a central component of business strategy, companies will find themselves having to enact a threat-based cybersecurity approach to keep pace. Threat-based cybersecurity is a forward-looking, predictive approach. Gone are the days of focusing solely on protecting critical data assets or following the basic script of a generic cyber program. While of course those areas are important, threat-based cybersecurity takes risk management to the next level by also concentrating on investments in the most likely risk areas and attack vectors based on an organization’s unique threat profile (instead of focusing only on a company’s industry, geography, and/or revenue size). Threat-based cybersecurity approaches go hand in hand with innovation, as security serves as the backbone to digital transformation—and can even be an innovation catalyst.

This October, as BDO recognizes National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we strongly encourage you to evaluate your organization’s cybersecurity posture. While cybersecurity remains top of mind for boards and C-level executives, organizations now need to pivot to identifying an effective and innovative strategy to avoid falling victim to cyber criminals. BDO offers comprehensive cybersecurity services, and can help protect your organization from cyber threats.
