Most executive leaders have 3 main questions about cybersecurity:
Where are we?
Where do we want to be?
How will we get there?
As a CISO, you are tasked with providing the answers and coming up with The Plan.
Having an assessment done of the company’s cybersecurity posture and how it needs to improve helps you develop the plan and effectively present the information to executive leaders and board members.
With this clarity of getting every member on the same page on the organization’s cybersecurity requirements, it will be a more straightforward process to secure the needed funding for executing your plan.
When it comes time to report on the improvements, you will be able to build on the information presented in the prior presentation. This creates a continuous progress that can be tracked over time, saving you from having to “start of square one” at every board meeting.
Here is an Endpoint Security Checklist we have put together for SMEs.
It is made up of 2 sections and a total of 36 multi-choice questions:
Section 1: Preventing Initial Compromise
Section 2: Mitigating Post-Exploitation Techniques
You will receive a summary report after completing all the questions. That will give you insights on your organization’s endpoint security posture and help you draw up a meaningful action plan to take to your next board meeting.
