Welcome back to the 12 Days to Inspire Cybersecurity Culture!
DAY 11: Assessments are great, but remediation is key!
Remediation is a structured plan to identify and reduce security threats. It’s designed to help you detect issues before they become a problem and resolve issues that have already done damage.
A remediation roadmap will:
- Help you understand and monitor your organization’s attack surface
- Track and scale your organization’s progress and clearly identify what steps to take next, such as processes to establish, security products to implement, etc.
- Give you the steps to take to be within compliance which is your baseline for your security maturity
- If followed, prove your cybersecurity is maturing and therefore justify your security budget!
Overall, a remediation roadmap is a strategic guide to giving you a clear, data-driven understanding of your threat landscape and risks. It will help you communicate your security maturity to executives and plan your security directives for the upcoming year.
