It’s no secret that the cybersecurity industry has grown exponentially over more than a decade due to the proliferation of high-profile cybercrime. Viewing cybersecurity as simply a necessary step to mitigate cyber risk leaves much opportunity on the table. Organizational leaders need to see cybersecurity as a business enabler that can accelerate growth.
Companies that view cybersecurity with the myopic lens of being a necessary overhead cost to protect data are losing out on opportunities to innovate and grow. In this age of continued digital disruption, companies that embrace cybersecurity to protect critical assets, empower mobile employees, modernize their IT infrastructure and streamline compliance will far outpace their competitors who view cybersecurity as just a means to protect data.
