Cybersecurity & Risk Management

Planet’s holistic cybersecurity services position you as a cybersecurity leader with governance, resourcing, security frameworks, data protection, and training and awareness

In a world where data breaches seem to be accepted as commonplace, it’s unsurprising cybersecurity and risk management sit at the top of the NASCIO priorities list. But, what do we really mean by these broad, umbrella terms? To differentiate the two, cybersecurity is the general practice of protecting technology and data from digital attack. Risk management, meanwhile, comprises the processes, technologies, and governance an organization uses to plan for and mitigate technology vulnerabilities and threats (i.e. risks). Together, these two processes include numerous critical security functions such as security resourcing, identity and access management, data security, the development of secure applications, DevSecOps (Development, Security, and Operations), security training, addressing insider threats, and more.
