Help the C-Suite understand how cybersecurity risk connects to their big picture.
You clearly see the need to proactively address risk blind spots. So how do you make this urgent need clear to executives who control budget and finance? By speaking their language.
Business leaders don’t focus on access controls, control families, or security frameworks. They care about the customer experience and how it affects profitability. They care about their brand and reputation, factors that impact growth. Convince them that your proposed investment in cyber security moves those needles – or protects them from taking a hit – and you’ll get the resources you need.
For most executives, cyber security is a box to be checked. But cyber security has potentially huge impacts on key business drivers that they care about deeply. They just need help making the connection. RedMonocle empowers you to do exactly that.
RedMonocle translates complex technical information into easy-to-understand problems and solutions with clear business value.
Our platform maps NIST SP 800-53 controls to related business metrics, so you can make a strong case for the fixes you need by showing their impact on critical business objectives like Digital Transformation, Corporate Social Responsibility, and Systemic Risk.
We worked with Forrester™ to create business metrics that map to security compliance metrics. This arms you with credible, clear evidence that your fixes will impact business objectives that are a priority for the C-Suite.
Relate risk directly to business objectives
RedMonocle can help you clearly communicate the business value of upgrading tools, improving policies, and increasing resources to meet new threats. This doesn’t simply justify the funding you need. It can earn you the respect – and the seat at the Board Room table – that you deserve.
RedMonocle mapped more than 1,000 NIST SP 800-53 controls and control enhancements to 17 core business indexes, and we scored each on a scale of 1-5. We group these indexes into three business metrics: Digital Transformation, Corporate Social Responsibility, and Systemic Risk.
This enables CISOs to deliver an easy-to-read dashboard that correlates current risk positions to the business metrics that matter to the executive team.
Congrats! You just convinced a non-tech executive to fund your fixes.
