In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:
- Diagnose Cyber Operations projects, initiatives, organisations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices

- Integrate recent advances in Cyber Operations and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines
Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organisation and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Cyber Operations investments work better.
This Cyber Operations All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
