Cybersecurity programs too often fall short of the threats that they are meant to thwart. Compliance mandates define broad scopes, and the work and effort that cybersecurity teams devote to achieving compliance often don’t match the frequency, depth, or functional requirements needed to mitigate the threats that they face. So let’s start with a practical look at some very specific activities to focus on instead of just callously saying that compliance does not equal security.
Conversely, the work of Christ, finished at Calvary’s Cross, fully meets the threat that believers face in a fallen world and for the Kingdom of God. So what work are we as believers then called to do? Let’s go to the scripture and see what specific activities God calls on believers to focus on, and see what he reveals as Good Works for the Kingdom.
When we go to work each day, how do we combine the cybersecurity activities and Good Works activities to achieve God’s goals for us, and how can we rest in the Finished Work with faith and confidence.
