Cyber Risk = Business Risk

Enterprise data security is tied directly to a company's bottom line, as shown by reports indicating Sony's $15 million price tag for the hack and Sony Pictures Co-Chair Amy Pascal's decision to step down. When all is said and done, sensitive information revealed during the Sony hack is expected to cost the company billions of dollars. Security breaches are not just exposures of a series of numbers lying motionless in a database. They are invasions of the valued trust of your customers and users, they are invasions of personal information, and they often cost millions in revenue loss. Investments in innovative security solutions should be a regular line item and seen as integral to keeping a business healthy.

In a world without walls, protecting highly sensitive files and data is much harder than it used to be. Ultimately, today's CIOs must operate with the philosophy that leaks will happen, that the perimeter is inherently porous and sensitive user data will travel, whether they like it or not. Not to mention, forcing employees into a restrictive workflow is a losing proposition that runs the risk of pushing users to go rogue. Just look at the industry that has sprung up around protecting against shadow IT.

In the face of this reality, the question becomes, what should be top of mind for CIOs and CISOs everywhere? With 2014 dubbed the year of the data breach, and the severity of attacks already intensifying in 2015, Robin Daniels, chief marketing officer at Veradocs, has outlined five unique strategies for both CIOs and CISOs to innovate, excel and inspire change to protect both the enterprise and individuals from the inevitable — even after the inevitable happens.
