Have a Business-Centric Vision

Data is the DNA of a business, with a business only being as healthy as the security processes protecting it. This needs to be articulated over and over to executives, employees and stakeholders in order to plainly outline a comprehensive vision for the future of the company's data security strategy with an actionable game plan ready for implementation. Business leaders respond when the vision is clear and measurable, and employees adhere to guidelines that are direct and user-friendly.

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.
