Action description

Digital transformation is on top of every CEOs agenda. However, hardly any understand how to manage the security risks that have emerged as a result. As organizations become more interconnected to their supply chain, customers, and partners, new types of risk have emerged. Unmanaged, these can lead to the loss of sensitive corporate data, violation of privacy laws, and damaged reputations.

These incidents put every organization at risk - and it is the C-Suite who bear the ultimate responsibility. In North America, 32% of breaches lead to a C-level leader, manager, or president losing their job. While 77% of business leaders understand the need to manage digital risk, they face a sizeable challenge to understand the impact of digitization and create a coherent approach to protect their brand and their customers against cyberthreats.

The burden to manage digital risks should not fall on a single department. Organizations need to set up a framework for greater interaction between different C-Level roles, in order to work together and move to a collaborative, enterprise-wide approach to risk. By doing so, silos are broken down, friction is reduced, and risk becomes embedded in the overall business initiatives.

Also, the interconnectivity of the digital age means we need to widen our view. A physical network no longer determines the organization’s boundary; the very data organizations seek to protect is spread across third parties, social media, mobile devices, and the cloud. This means organizations need to gain visibility beyond their traditional perimeter.

This lecture will outline a framework for how organizations can better understand and manage digital risk. In doing so, we address the most important questions that companies face when developing Digital Risk Protection capabilities:

• What are the critical assets of your organizations, and where are they?
• What are the threats to your business and what are the motivation and goals of your adversaries?
• How is your business being exposed?
• How can you protect your organization and how can you detect data loss, secure your online brand and reduce your attack surface?

Digital Shadows minimizes digital risk by identifying unwanted exposure and protecting against external threats. Organizations can suffer regulatory fines, loss of intellectual property, and reputational damage when digital risk is left unmanaged. Digital Shadows SearchLight™ helps you minimize these risks by detecting data loss, securing your online brand, and reducing your attack surface.
