At Crayon, we are thrilled to introduce our new podcast series, specifically curated for partners. We’re eager to guide channel partners on their transformational journey, particularly in the complex domain of cybersecurity.
The first episode of the Crayon Cyber Chat opens up a trove of insights from industry experts, covering everything from mitigating cybersecurity threats to harnessing the power of compliance standards.
Embracing Cybersecurity Risks and Solutions
In a rapidly digitalizing world, the menace of cyber threats is becoming increasingly potent. So, the first step in our journey is understanding these threats and identifying mitigation solutions. Our guests underscore the importance of a thorough testing regime for these solutions to ensure their efficacy aligns with the desired mitigation strategies.
Additionally, the choice of vendors supplying these solutions plays a significant role in risk resilience and recovery. As a partner, ensuring that your chosen vendor can provide robust solutions and adequate regional support is crucial, enabling rapid and efficient response during an adverse impact event.
Staying Compliant: A Global Perspective
Compliance with global standards forms the backbone of a secure cybersecurity framework. In the Australian context, organizations tend to align with the ACSC’s information security manual, the NIST publications, and the CIS V8.
However, staying abreast of international regulations such as GDPR and GPA is equally crucial. Interestingly, despite minor differences, the requirements, controls, and mitigation strategies of these standards are largely similar across countries, ensuring a coherent global approach to cybersecurity.
The Competitive Edge of Cybersecurity Investment
The discussion turns intriguing when it’s highlighted that for the first time, 47% of surveyed SMBs recognize their cybersecurity investments as enabling them to be more competitive. Our guests concur that a robust cybersecurity practice is a protective measure and a competitive advantage in today’s heightened threat landscape.
A breach in one organization can erode customer confidence and provide a competitive edge to a rival firm that demonstrates secure operations. Investing in cybersecurity is no longer optional; it is necessary to maintain a brand reputation and secure business growth.
