- Companies need to pursue a risk management and mitigation strategy identifying their most important data and thinking about the impact of that data being compromised. There are so many different issues, threats, and security choices (> 1,500), companies must prioritize what’s most important to secure based on the company and the industry – especially when regulated. Once a company has decided on the most important data to protect, they are in a much better position to identify the solutions that will help them achieve their objective.

Unfortunately, few, if any, of these solutions, are integrated, making the CISO team’s job that much more difficult.
