Vince Lombardi, one of the greatest coaches of all time said, “The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.” Think about the most successful coaches and you’ll see a common thread – the ability to bring players and staff together and use their talents effectively and intelligently to defeat opponents. Phil Jackson accomplished this with different NBA franchises and Joe Gibbs with different quarterbacks. They didn’t count on any one “star” to carry the team. Nor did they focus their efforts defending against one big threat. They led their teams to victory by looking at the big picture and understanding how to strategically apply capabilities to defeat whatever the opposition pulled out of their bag of tricks.
Wouldn’t it make sense to follow a similar approach to defeat adversaries and mitigate digital risk, the risk associated with expanding our digital footprint as we increase business activities on the internet and via cloud solutions? But, typically, we don’t.
Just as great coaches know they’re up against an entire team that can vary their plays and draw on different skills with the sole aim of defeating them, the risks as you digitally transform your business come from all kinds of adversaries and places beyond the boundary. Individually, you don’t just have a dark web problem, or an open source problem or a social media problem. You have a problem with ALL external digital risks and threat actors seeking to do your business harm.
Digital risks include cyber threats, data exposure, brand exposure, third-party risk, VIP exposure, physical threats and infrastructure exposure. Often these threats and risks span data sources and cannot be detected in full context by any point solution or even by multiple solutions used in isolation. You need insight across the widest range of data sources possible to mitigate digital risk and better protect your organization. Here are three examples.
In each of these three examples, tracking just one source, or even all sources but in isolation would not give you the full context for any one of these threats. Like a coach, you need to be able to see the big picture with an approach that monitors the entire Internet for risks to your business. Only then can you take the right actions to keep your business and reputation intact and mitigate digital risk in the future.
