Business Challenges

Extensive Regulatory Requirements | Manual Assessment Processes | Custom Framework Management | Expanded Attack Surface

As a large tech company that deals with finance and national security, security leaders at CBN faced top-down pressure to revitalize the cybersecurity program and evolve their program past the inefficiencies of spreadsheets. CBN needed to consolidate the risk and compliance efforts from three different divisions under a single platform. With a growing number of cloud applications, it became challenging for CBN to manage risk and compliance without a centralized approach supported by automation so that CBN

Crosswalking was a priority for CBN as it would help conduct internal gap analysis and provide enhanced transparency of the progress made as a whole and by division. CBN needed a solution that would cut the time and cost of manual risk assessment and crosswalking and that had access to multiple frameworks and could support custom control sets.
