Abstract

At the CYBURGH, PA Initiative event in February 2016, Pittsburgh area participants will discuss cybersecurity issues, solutions to them, and next steps. Cybersecurity challenges are grouped into three categories: those related to people, process, and technology. This article complements the process discussions, which center around the following:

  • Sharing cyber information with our peer organizations
  • Detecting and responding to the cyber incidents we face
  • Selecting and managing vendors in our supply chain
  • Identifying our trustworthy sources of threat intelligence
  • Communicating the value of cybersecurity to our Boards of Directors and other stakeholders
  • Framing cybersecurity as a facet of risk management (like other organizational challenges)
  • Measuring the effectiveness of our cybersecurity
