Balancing Cybersecurity Risk with Technological Innovation: Using Policy as Code
The pursuit of innovation and the deployment of cybersecurity measures often appear mutually exclusive. The steps we take to enhance security are concentrated on mitigating risk, while innovation demands you to be open to taking risks.
Sometimes, organizations decide to prioritize innovation over security to gain a competitive advantage. Although it feels like a challenging decision for product owners and business leaders, it shouldn’t be. While innovation and time to market are critical, so is security. You need to find a healthy balance between both.
It’s important because innovation opens the path to new revenue streams, enhanced customer experiences, and creates new market opportunities. Robust security, on the other hand, ensures compliance and helps maintain brand image and value.
