Coalfire Contributes to New Book on Cybersecurity

October 12, 2015, Larry Jones, CEO

Today marks the launch of a new book published by the New York Stock Exchange and Palo Alto Networks called, "Navigating the Digital Age: The Definitive Cybersecurity Guide for Directors and Officers." I’m proud to have worked with my predecessor, the late Rick Dakin, to contribute a chapter to this book, which provides boards, executives, and officers at enterprises, government agencies, and other organizations with useful, expert advice on how to best protect their businesses from cyberattacks.

Our chapter, “Establishing the structure, authority and processes to create an effective program,” delves into the the connection between the board room and those managing the critical infrastructure. Each level of the organization must participate in an integrated and collaborative fashion. The chapter leverages lessons learned from Coalfire’s previous engagements to provide a condensed but effective approach to cyber risk management, and cybersecurity program creation and oversight.  

The chapter goes into detail about the most common approach for creating and maintaining an enterprise security program, which follows a five-step risk management process. These steps include planning, protecting, detecting, responding and adjusting. What’s most important to remember, however, is that effective cybersecurity program development and oversight requires executives to implement and manage the process at three levels within the organization: executive level, business unit level and operational level.
