The Impact of Business Alignment on Cybersecurity Effectiveness

Cybersecurity versus the Business 

Is cybersecurity misaligned to business outcomes?   

As organizations navigate a complex IT landscape and uncertain economic climate, alignment between cybersecurity and business outcomes is essential for success. The better-aligned cybersecurity is with the business, the more resilient the business becomes, AND the more the business can thrive. 

Delinea surveyed over 2,000 security decision-makers in 22 countries, working in enterprises with over 500 employees, to understand the current state of business and cybersecurity alignment. More precisely, we wanted to identify, with data, the kinds of attributes that have a meaningful impact on business enablement, including metrics, skills, and organizational structures.
