Explaining the PCSI Cyber Security Radar
The PCSI Cyber Security Radar contains the most current and relevant trends for the PCSI partners in the cybersecurity landscape. The PCSI partners use the security radar to select urgent themes to start new innovation projects.
The Security Radar provides an understanding of which trends have the greatest impact (either from a risk or opportunity perspective) on the cyber security posture of the PCSI partners. The Security Radar is thereby a starting point for topic selection to start cyclical innovation projects within the PCSI program, with the aim of strengthening the cyber security of the participating organizations.
The trends on this Radar are the result of extensive literature study, interviews with cybersecurity experts from all PCSI partners and in-depth analyses. Out of this longlist we create a shortlist of around 35 most relevant trends. Through an online survey among experts of each participating PCSI partner each of these trends was analyzed in-dept.
Each trend was classified as being an opportunity or a threat, it was determined on which time horizon the trend will reach impact, the potential impact of the trend on PCSI partners was assessed and the extent to which the trend would fit in the collaborative innovation proces in the PCSI. Finally, a workshop to fine-tune the Radar was organized in order to resolve misalignment in the survey.
How to read the Radar
Each trend is depicted as a circle on the Security Radar. The number within the circle is the number of the trend. You can click on each circle and the trend description will appear, including whether is considered an opportunity or a threat.
The relevance of trends grows from moderate relevance to very high relevance and is the average of expected impact and expected fit with PCSI. The higher the position of the trend on the Security Radar, the more relevant it is
The expected time when trends will have impact can be seen by their position in a circular radius. The further the trend lies from the inner center circle on the Security Radar, the later the trend is expected to reach impact on the PCSI partners.
The Security Radar is updated periodically. Each 4 months, the PCSI steering committee selects the trends from the Security Radar that will be leading for the next innovation cycle. By keeping the Security Radar up to date, we can quickly and easily respond to current developments.
