Information Security domain has been growing at an accelerated pace over the past few years. With the introduction of cyber security, the domain has added a whole new dimension onto itself. In recent years I have been interacting with many business and technology leaders who are in one way or another involved in some aspect of security for their organization. These interactions remind me of an Indian fable “blind men and the elephant”. A fable is a short story mostly involving animal characters to convey an insight or moral, it is not meant to be derogatory towards its audience. Blind men and the elephant is a story of 6 blind men trying to describe an elephant. Each blind man describes the elephant based on the part of the animal they had touched, resulting in different description from one another. Everyone is telling the truth, but no one is calling it the beast that it is. With 100s of controls to choose from, my experience has been that the following 40 controls mitigate majority of the risk. My goal here, to the extent possible, provide a simplified yet holistic view of the domain for Business and IT leaders to device an effective cybersecurity strategy. I welcome your question, comment & suggestions.
