In this chapter we consider how business goals may interfer with and impact on the way in which cyberdefense systems are designed within organizations. We discuss major issues associated with the trade-off between business and security priorities. We then offer a practical guide explaining how business goals can be harmonized with cybersecurity tasks through our Cybersecurity Investment Prioritization methodology.
