Even when cybersecurity professionals successfully defend their organizations against cyber threats, they still struggle to demonstrate the value of proactively investing in various security measures. The Security Outcomes Canvas offers help by bringing business and security outcomes to a single page. It helps security teams plan with business outcomes in mind and gives them the appropriate business vocabulary to link security outcomes to business outcomes. It also makes security less of a generic investment to business leaders and more of a tool that reduces the risks of business outcomes. It reduces time to alignment and improves planning and communication.

Key Takeaways:
• Needing the right vocabulary for both business and information security leaders is key
• Decision makers in the board room are now understanding the need for cyber security and how it can contribute to overall business success
• Hear how the need for technical information has not gone away
• A practical takeaway – learn how the Security Outcomes Canvas is a tool to help give organisations complete visibility into exactly what they are defending, allowing them to focus on using cyber security to achieve business goals.
