Technology is changing, evolving on a daily basis, and global cybersecurity and infosec strategies need to change with it. Organizations need to give the entire company a vision that's inspirational. But making that vision a reality is all operational, said Akm Hasan, head of cybersecurity at Hays PLC.

Organizations must review progress against the plan to see how far it has been achieved. The risk management scope is vast, like an ocean, he said, but every angle needs to be covered by the board and risk management committee, including cyber risk and data risk- internal, external and global.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at Infosecurity Europe 2023, Hasan discussed:

  • Operationalizing strategy - the need to review both strategy and operations in the light of changes in the threat environment;
  • Why risk management needs to encompass all potential risks;
  • Putting processes in place to prepare for zero-day vulnerabilities.

Hasan has over 12 years of experience in taking strategic initiatives for the organization's cybersecurity, IT and business groups. He helps maintain a delicate balance between business and security and implements security programs and technology initiatives to strengthen Hays' security posture. He is the author of "Hays Global Cyber and InfoSec Strategy" and leader of the Hays Global Cyber and InfoSec Committee, which provides a comprehensive road map and vision for cybersecurity and information security across 34 countries.
