The Role of the CISO

"If your organisation is producing value then you must confront cyber risks because you have something at stake. WannaCry and NotPetya were just the latest in a long line of cyber security wakeup calls where industry runs the risk of just hitting the snooze button, yet again.
"Many top ASX companies have chief information security officers, or CISOs, to help them identify and manage cyber risks. If you've got a CISO then your organisation has had the epiphany that it is a digital business and it thrives, or withers, on its ability to deal with cyber risks in a hyper-connected world."

Conclusion: The challenge with handling threat intelligence is in assessing its relevance to an organisation, determining an appropriate response and then continual execution and reassessment. Consequently, the more comprehensive the threat intelligence service is, the greater the requirement for a customer to have existing, mature cyber security capability. Organisations must understand how they will use a threat intelligence service and what business benefit it will deliver to their organisation.
