Adopting cloud computing technologies and services presents financial services institutions with opportunities to address many forms of security risks in new, innovative, and more effective ways.
However, firms often lack the tools required to map out their digital transformation journey in the context of security and risk governance.
That’s why it is important for Chief Information Security Officers, Chief Risk Officers, Chief Compliance Officers, Heads of Internal Audit, and their teams to have a cloud security transformation roadmap.
We suggest that the following principles, adopted in four core stages, should be your guide and reference when navigating the journey.
A successful digital transformation requires the orchestration of organizational, cultural, technical, and procedural changes and a risk and control approach that matures as you go.
Once there is an establishedoverall transformation program oversight path, ensure technology, operational, and security risk governance acts as a “check and balance” to the overall program.
