When it comes to cybersecurity, organizations face a future in which it’s best to prepare for worst-case scenarios. Unfortunately, it’s often difficult to convince the decision makers of this fact. It’s much easier for organizations to acknowledge the overall value of cyber risk management than to be specific in terms of organizational goals, budgets, and revenue. Nextgov.com brought this interesting information to us in their article, “How to Connect Cyber Investment to Outcomes.”

The National Institute for Standards and Technology’s Cybersecurity Framework is helping codify standards, guidelines, and best practices on flexible and cost-effective steps for protection and resilience amid cyber threats.

Cyber risk management is important for every organization, regardless if they are public or private. As the Cybersecurity Framework continues to evolve a road map for security strategy, organizations must continually refine their ability to chart the impact of those investments. Cyber events will still happen to your organization, but it will be better prepared to deal with them.
