What is Security Governance?

Security governance is a set of agreed responsibilities and practices with the goal of steering security strategy, achieving objectives, ensuring appropriate risk management, and verifying that an organization’s data and resources are used responsibly.

Because user behaviour is the cause of almost all cybersecurity risks, a greater awareness of these risks across the organization helps reduce security incidents.

Why do I need a security governance team?

From phishing emails to suspicious links or attachments, ransomware to vulnerabilities in source code that leaves a network open to attack, developing and leading a culture of cybersecurity awareness can mitigate unsafe employee activity.

The objective is to develop an effective and compliant Information Security Management System (ISMS) within your organization, with ownership across the team.
