Customer enterprises are constantly exploring how to innovate. They’re delivering products and services in new ways, while empowering employees to collaborate and implement ideas from anywhere. As a result, they are and adopting artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation to enhance customer experience and streamline operations. Innovators need technology that gives them this competitive advantage, but they can’t innovate if security issues hold them back.
 
To transform ideas into outcomes faster, customers need confidence that their data and systems are secure and protected anywhere they are accessible. Security is no longer simply about mitigating risks. It has evolved from a foundational “must do” to a critical catalyst that drives the business forward.
  
By investing in cybersecurity, organizations can gain several benefits that foster a culture of creativity, collaboration and competitiveness. Cybersecurity stimulates innovation by:
 
Enabling digital transformation. Digital transformation involves using technology to improve business processes, products, services and customer experiences. Cybersecurity is essential for digital transformation because it ensures the security, privacy and reliability of an organization’s digital assets and platforms. By implementing cybersecurity best practices, organizations can take advantage of the latest technologies, including cloud computing, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things and blockchain. This accelerates the necessary innovation to gain efficiencies and differentiate themselves from their competitors.
 
Encouraging experimentation and learning. Innovation involves trying out new ideas, testing hypotheses and learning from failures. Cybersecurity can facilitate this process of experimentation and learning by providing a secure environment for testing and deploying new solutions.
 
Fostering collaboration and trust. Innovation is a collaborative effort, which requires the involvement and contribution of various stakeholders such as employees, customers, partners and suppliers. Cybersecurity can promote collaboration and trust by ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information and resources that are shared and exchanged among the stakeholders. It can also enhance the organization’s reputation and credibility by demonstrating its commitment and capability to protect its own interests as well as those of its stakeholders.
 
Driving value creation and differentiation. Innovation creates and delivers value to the customers and the market. Cybersecurity can drive value creation and differentiation by enabling the organization to offer secure, reliable and high-quality products and services that meet or exceed customers’ expectations and needs.
