Cyber Exposure: A New Discipline for Understanding and Reducing Cyber Risk
Digital transformation is a reality for every organization today, no matter the industry or size. From cloud adoption that unleashes on-demand scalability, to industrial IoT that unlocks new revenue opportunities, to DevOps approaches that accelerate innovation, to new customer touchpoints that deepen customer relationships.
For many security leaders, the greatest challenge today is simply seeing all the assets in their environment. Legacy security tools and approaches have not kept up with new technologies adopted by IT and Line of Business, which increases overall risk to the business. The result is a Cyber Exposure gap, which is the growing distance between what existing tools provide and what security teams need today.
A new security discipline is required to help organizations close this gap: Cyber Exposure. Cyber Exposure enables every organization to be able to confidently answer three questions at all times:
- How secure are we?
- How exposed are we?
- How do we proactively reduce our exposure?
