The Customer

Our customer is a global leader in the paint industry with a rich history dating back to the 1800s. Since then, the company has evolved into a multi-billion dollar corporation with a broad spectrum of products and services. Our customer's commitment to innovation is not just limited to its products; it extends to how the company approaches security and privacy in an increasingly digital world.

The company recognizes the importance of understanding and managing the financial risks associated with security and privacy, particularly in a manufacturing and retail-oriented industry. The dual nature of their business – manufacturing paint and operating retail stores – presents unique challenges in cybersecurity and privacy risk management and safeguarding its operations, customer data, and reputation.

The Challenge

The primary challenge for our customer in cybersecurity was managing and presenting privacy and security risks in financial terms.

The dynamic and multifaceted nature of cybersecurity threats and the need to comply with various regulations and standards made it imperative for our customer to adopt a solution that could simplify and communicate these risks in an understandable and actionable format. The objective was to present complex security and privacy risks aligning with the business understanding of various internal stakeholders, including executive positions.
