[October 2nd] How to Spend Cyber Budgets Wisely — It’s expected that the remote workforce will continue well into 2021, and perhaps beyond. In fact, many businesses in Corporate America are now letting employees WFH forever, or as long as they want to. With this, there also has been a huge tightening of cybersecurity budgets, with perhaps only modest increases being given out. So now the question arises, how can the CISO wisely spend their limited resources, while at the same time, put out daily fires and align with their company’s strategic objectives?

[November 4th] 8 Cyber Stats for Industrial Control Systems — Conventional power stations, nuclear power plants, and water distribution systems are just a few of the entities that rely on Industrial Control Systems (ICS). Due to this dependency on ICS, these systems continue to garner the interest of bad actors who aim to disrupt the availability and integrity of industrial processes and the services they provide to society.

[November 25th] Building a Compliance Dashboard — Building a compliance dashboard is no easy task since it requires a great deal of effort to design, create, maintain, and utilize effectively, but with modern tools it is significantly easier than in the past. Much like traditional software development, the most critical stage to get right in building a compliance dashboard is requirements analysis since it’s critical to thoroughly understand the purpose, requirements, and goals of the dashboard prior to implementation. Designing a compliance dashboard without a proper understanding of what to measure is a recipe for disaster, which means that knowing the difference between measuring performance versus measuring activity is crucial.
