Building business value in the future of cyber

Organizations look beyond IT and toward outcomes as they make cyber a foundation for success

An increasingly interconnected world presents new risks alongside new growth opportunities. The results of Deloitte’s 2023 Global Future of Cyber Survey featuring Gartner’s research, Optimizing the Business Value of Security Using the Gartner Enterprise Value Equation, shows a new dynamic emerging as C-suite leaders and boards collaborate to embed cyber across the broader business strategy.

Cybersecurity was once a box for businesses to check or a bucket to fill, but those days are long over. Having a cyber strategy, or the lack of it, isn't a pro or con of how your organization does business. It is your business.  

Across the globe and across industries, organizations are increasingly recognizing the role cyber plays inenabling broad business success. As more executives view cyber through the lens of business value and impact, a conversation on the future of cyber ultimately becomes a conversation about the future of business. By linking cyber with strategies that drive business outcomes, cyber becomes a foundation for success, whether success is measured in revenue growth, innovation, brand reputation, customer trust and loyalty, or other priorities.

Cybersecurity risk presents a challenge for all businesses everywhere and being informed about the latest strategies embraced by experts is a crucial step for securing your future, the future of your industry, and the continued viability of the interconnected global economy.
