Deloitte Digital business obstacle: Cyber security

How can I address my customers' new digital needs without being held back by security threats?

Key facts and trends

In a fast-evolving digital world and an increasingly competitive marketplace, you need to continuously rethink your business to address new digital needs of your customers and to stay on top of disruptive competitors. While developing Digital strategy, online collaboration with business partners, customers, suppliers, and outworkers, you have to carefully consider new threats and risks posed by the digital transformation and its related technologies.

Without a secure digital environment, you are exposed to security threats which risk to weaken your company. Cyber security is too often approached through tactical and short-term solutions (e.g. tools and technologies), without sufficient consideration for developing a comprehensive and organization-wide strategic vision required to address the main challenges that you can face today, such as lack of security governance and adapted organization, lack or rational for funding or in-house skills and resources, inadequacy of the control framework to the evolving cyber threat landscape (e.g. ransomware), insufficient security incident detection and response capabilities or even multiplication of security tools.
