  • Cybersecurity roadmap: What's driving CISOs' agendas for 2018

    Omar F. Khawaja, CISO at Highmark Health, has five areas of focus on his cybersecurity roadmap, and technology is not at the top of the list. Instead, he is prioritizing organizational change management and building an effective decision-making framework for the security leaders of the national healthcare provider and insurer.

    While Khawaja's cybersecurity roadmap may sound ambitious, his focus on risk management and team decision-making to align the security program with the healthcare organization's business strategy is far from unique. Studies show that executives increasingly recognize that a cyberattack could cripple their operations and mean millions in lost business and reputational damage as well as in cleanup costs.

    "CISOs are now charged with defending this digital infrastructure, and that includes software everywhere and data as a resource, and that's a massive change at a time when the attack surface keeps expanding," says Jeff Pollard, an analyst at Forrester Research.

    In this issue of Information Security magazine, security professionals detail the process of developing effective one-year plans. Why do companies struggle to strengthen their cybersecurity roadmap? We look at effective planning, what could go wrong and how to get support for your strategy.

    Time is of the essence. If you haven't started getting ready for the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it is time to start. GDPR goes into effect May 25, 2018, and is designed to protect EU residents' privacy and personal data by specifying rules, processes and technologies organizations must follow or use. Noncompliance -- both major and minor -- could lead to significant financial penalties that climb high enough to put some companies out of business. Compliance isn't optional; it's a must. While it won't be easy -- in some cases, particularly so -- to meet the GDPR's 87 pages and 99 articles of specifications and regulations, it isn't impossible. Read on to find out everything you need know about GDPR, see what it means for your organization and, most importantly, learn how to make sure you're not on the short end of the GDPR compliance stick.
