Among the surveyed boards, 62% emphasized improving customer engagement and loyalty. To gain a competitive edge, SRM leaders should consider the following recommendations.

  • Identify critical business units and their corresponding risk appetites. Develop an inventory of the organization's most valuable data and information assets.

  • Foster a culture of innovation by organizing "break the rules" meetings, providing a safe space for the security team to challenge established norms and start afresh.
  • Enhance business acumen within the security team, enabling them to articulate security controls in terms of business risks, value, and cost, rather than     solely focusing on policies.
  • Develop a framework that guides non-security decision makers in making informed and independent information risk decisions.
  • Establish a security strategy think tank to explore emerging security threats and technologies, enhancing preparedness and influencing digital decision     making across the organization.
  • Adopt a more flexible approach to control selection, shifting from rigid compliance-based mindsets to principles and policies supported by security     services.
  • Design a security vision and culture charter created by end-users for end-users, fostering the adoption of desired security behavior norms to mitigate     human-born cyber risks.
  • Evaluate the impact of control implementation on the customer and end-user journey, working collaboratively with business units to ensure effective     communication and minimize disruption.
