Change the Dialogue

Without accounting for security, the organization can be left vulnerable. Security professionals know how to build zero trust into any environment, however, most business leaders know that zero trust would likely jeopardize efficiency gains for the business.

For every organization, the goal is balance.

How can you ensure that you're promoting an efficient culture that supports secure corporate citizens? Instead of stifling creativity under numerous rules, Next Dimension recommends leaders take a Security - Based Approach to Executive Decision Making. Once the guiding principles have been set for your organization, they will inspire positive behaviour within executives to weave security deep into their decision making process. With these guiding principles, how would you change your approach?

Mutual Priorities

Inside, you'll find tips and tactics to mutually prioritize security and efficiency in your strategic decision making.  You'll promote an efficient culture that supports secure corporate citizens.  This shift in thinking is one small but impactful step in creating a Security Culture.  Reckless automation leads to catastrophic vulnerabilities.  Unrealistic security stifles organizational performance creativity.  The winning formula is a balanced approach.
