Cybersecurity Culture is Good for Business
Innovative organizations are built on trust and transparency. They move fast because they share information effectively and trust everyone to make good decisions. Cybersecurity has long stood in the way of that. Strict rules and policies don’t work, because they don’t apply to every situation. Making the security team review and decide everything slows business down and often makes security an afterthought. If you want your entire organization to make responsible decisions when it comes to data and technology, risk awareness is not enough. Everyone needs to be trusted to make good decisions, even when the security team is not watching. They need to have the tools and support to make those good decisions. That’s what security culture is about: security is everyone’s job and everyone is trained and empowered to take that ownership.
Managing cybersecurity risks effectively does not have to cripple your organization by adding hierarchy and bottlenecks. Even a nimble low hierarchy organization without full-time security people can achieve security certifications. We know, because help startups achieve them.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
That’s how we think of risk assessments. In today’s fast-paced world organizations need to experiment and quickly and continually try new things. Risk assessments need to be part of every teams’ and individual’s daily decision-making. Security professionals can’t always be there. Your organization is the best expert in what you do and by teaching you to understand the risks, you’ll always make the best calls.
Our business threat modeling canvases integrate assessing risks to security, privacy and business continuity with assessing risks to sustainability, corporate social responsibility and data ethics. We’ve designed canvases to support decision-making from individual team-level to corporate board-level.
If you give us 30 minutes, we’re happy to show you in practice how our canvases work.

Cult strives to create those solutions.
