SECURITY CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE


overview

While Boards of Directors and the C-Suite have the ultimate responsibility for cybersecurity, it is challenging for them to maintain awareness and understanding of the broad operation-wide penetration points, the ability to assess the options and costs to achieve a defensible cyber accountability strategy, and the tools to mitigate security breaches.

As information technology continues to fragment—relying on networked ecosystems to support digital platforms—critical information becomes exponentially more vulnerable with each new connection point. This ever expanding attack surface is one reason cybersecurity continues to be one of the top threats that companies face. 

In the face of this reality, corporate boards are under increased pressure to ensure their companies are prepared for cybersecurity incidents before they occur. The stakes continue to increase, expanding from strictly technology solutions to an entire enterprise-level strategy that translates security exposure into business risk.

Security risks require a thoughtful, coordinated and comprehensive approach. Breaches are more creative and powerful than ever requiring leaders to look beyond just tools and technology. Accenture Security services help you build resilience to drive innovation, high performance and growth.
