“Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.”
– Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Strategy and its tactics describes how an organization will achieve its cybersecurity goals and objectives. A strategy charts the path and direction from where an organization currently is to where it should be. Tactics are the specific actions or initiatives that will be taken to support the cybersecurity strategy.
