The Cyber Innovation Leadership Framework (CILF) has been developed to ensure that innovation becomes the guiding principle in enterprise Cyber & Risk Management departments. Too often, Cyber teams are risk averse and have a very restrictive cybersecurity control framework. In a world where zero-day threats are in abundance, there is a strong need to incorporate innovation in cyber decision making. CILF has been developed with this specific goal in which organizations can attain five (5) different levels by acquiring capabilities in twenty (20) different areas. It can be used as a tool for the systematic adoption of innovation tools & technologies for the risk management processes of the organization and provides guidance on methodologies that can ensure that organizations become agile in managing a vast array of cyber threats in today’s connected world.
