Security posture refers to the security status of an enterprise’s hardware, software and policies, its capability to manage its defenses and its ability to react as the situation changes (based on NIST).
An efficient and effective cybersecurity posture requires a clear understanding of what is important to your organization and why.
A good cyber security posture is only achievable when
the value of the data is managed,
the cyber risks and threat exposure of such data is understood,
appropriate, reliable and efficient security measures are in place and,
the organization is in control of its exposure.
