Strategizing Cyber-Security

Jim Jaeger, a Chief Cyber-Security Strategist at Fidelis Cyber-Security participates in Risk Roundup with Jayshree Pandya to discuss “Strategizing Cyber-Security in a Digital Global Age”.


The power of the computer code, connected computers, internet and related innovations in information, communication and digitalization technologies has triggered massive advances in ideas and innovations that have over the years re-invented or are in the process of re-inventing entire nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA): its industries, sectors, governance models, business models, products, services and more.
While these developments created new opportunities, it also created new risks, and none is greater than cyber-security risk.
The cyber-security risks today, present an increasingly complex set of security challenges for each and every entity across each and every NGIOA as today’s cyberattacks include, but are not limited to, stealing intellectual property, disrupting critical infrastructure in cyberspace and geospace, seizing digital identity, compromising online bank accounts, creating and distributing viruses and malwares, stealing and posting confidential information, and encrypting systems to demand financial payoff.
These growing web of cyber-attacks are complex, criminally or politically motivated, and are planned and executed masterfully by very persistent, skilled, and well-funded individuals, groups and organizations. Amidst this complex cyber-security challenges, how can any nation achieve cyber-security and secure cyberspace? How can any NGIOA strategize cyber-security?

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve “Global Peace through Risk Management”. It is her strong belief that collaboration between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the NGIOA framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the digital global age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!
At Risk Group, Jayshree is defining the language of risks and currently developing thought leadership, researching needed practices, tools, framework and systems to manage the “strategic and shared risks” facing nations in a “Global Age”. She believes that cyberspace cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As cyber-security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched “cyber-security risk research center” that will merge the boundaries of “geo-security, cyber-security and space-security”.
Previously, she launched and managed “Risk Management Matters”, an online risk journal and one of the first risk publications, publishing “Industry Risk Reports of Biotechnology, Energy, Healthcare, Nanotechnology, and Natural Disasters” over the course of five years. Jayshree’s inaugural book, “The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk”, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Group
Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
