Why Managing Today’s Threat Landscape Demands a Unified Model

It’s no secret that relationships are a foundational element for other areas of the business to understand the value of security. However, to be effective as a function security needs to be connected on a multitude of levels, and relationships need to root deeper than watercooler conversations. Rachel Briggs, CEO and Founder of The Clarity Factory, returns to the podcast to discuss her latest research on what this level of connectedness truly entails and why it’s critical to preventing threats that can often slip through the cracks between functions.

Briggs is a leading expert on security and has advised governments and multinational corporations on security, resilience, terrorism, and responses to extremism. In this episode, she discusses the following topics with host Chuck Randolph:

  • Why connectedness needs to happen on three distinct levels – within the risk function, within the organization, and between the organization and the outside world.
  • The biggest takeaways (and surprises) from her latest research in collaboration with Ontic and what it means for security professionals.
  • Advice for leaders on implementing organizational changes from the report into their team and why the ability to collaborate cannot be assumed.

Briggs has also published reports on empowering diversity, equity, and inclusion in corporate security and the business value of security. (Report links included below)
