Conscious Cyber should be the goal

Conscious Cyber is a human-centered approach to security and data protection. Empowering innovation, education, and collaboration and the construct of Conscious Cyber are based on the dimensions of order, disorder, and reorder.

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” ~ Heraclitus lived in 500 BC; his advice was spot on for the challenges of keeping up with technology. Conscious Cyber is a human-centered approach to security and data protection. Empowering innovation, education, and collaboration and the construct of Conscious Cyber are based on the dimensions of order, disorder, and reorder. It’s up to the technologist, and my belief is this is the role of the CISO. The CISO, in collaboration with the other C-suite executives, is the link to make sure we retain customers, expand markets, and improve efficiency — a look at the challenges at hand.  The steps we must take to know what we ought to be.  Security, Privacy, and Risk Management is at the heart of change.

The point of any company is to grow:  Retain customers, expand markets, and improve the efficiency of the overall operations.  However, the full promise of your mission is much deeper and broader: Money is the means to the end.  So what is the purpose?  As a technologist, we need to explore the much bigger story. Your company, under philosophical guidance, principles, and practices will expand that aspect that you usually do concerning security and income growth, companies need to examine what would it take to add significant new strands to the services it provides. Assess your ‘customers’ needs at the deepest level. Ask: ‘What would help a customer flourish in connection with our offerings?Where does technology intersect with the mission?  As technologist how do you come to an understanding of where the world of technology, marketing, and sales are failing to maximize the potential of its promise made.   Examine your understanding of the dimensions of order, disorder, and reorder.  These three dimensions should be part of any analysis of new products, services, brand, and communication strategies to align the company more closely with its “eudaimonic promise.”  May I suggest you employ the Socratic method and Aristotelian principles to show how the company can gain a deeper and more loyal engagement with customers both external and internal with technology.

Ask the question:  Are all your current practices a source of complicated customer dynamics?  Examine how to reconcile idealism and realism in marketing, technology, sales, and what it means to the bottom line.
