InvestorNewsBreaks – SideChannel Inc. (SDCH) CEO Talks Roadmap to Cybersecurity in Fortra Tripwire Interview

SideChannel (OTCQB: SDCH) was featured in a recent interview published by Fortra’s Tripwire. SideChannel’s founder and CEO Brian Haugli joined Tripwire’s Managing Editor Joe Pettit to discuss his experience and valuable insight for organizations that are rejuvenating or building new security programs. “The first thing to do is to really have a good, solid understanding of the program you’re building, and to what standard. I really like standards and frameworks, and I wrote a book about the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. However, if we were in Europe, I would look to the ISO series. You need to assess what your current program looks like, and what it’s lacking. You should be looking at the areas that are a prioritization of effectiveness and making sure that they’re still sound. And then, start addressing the areas where you have clear gaps. With my new company, as a virtual CISO, I do this during the first 30 days of the job,” Haugli said. “Without knowing what an organization looks like, I’m going to ask questions, such as ‘how have you built your program’ and ‘what is it built to?’ I’m not talking about compliance; I’m just talking about programmatic behaviors. If you can’t answer that, then that is the starting point. You need an assessment to get a full understanding of where the organization is today, the current state, what the target state is that it should look like. That becomes your roadmap on how to get there. The easy things to say are the things that cause you the most pain.”
