Companies Are Breaking Up with Excel for Managing Cybersecurity - Here’s Why

May 6, 2019 | BY Apptega

Excel is great for pivot tables and financial modeling, but one of its greatest weakness is that it's one-dimensional, not collaborative, static, and frustrating for generating on-demand reports.  And who really likes seeing #DIVO all the time?  Many organizations still use hundreds of Excel spreadsheets to manage their cybersecurity programs.  Excel was invented in 1985 and it's time for an upgrade.  

Many companies are still using Excel with multiple workbooks and complex formulas to capture and retain crucial information about cybersecurity compliance controls.  This dumps hoards of Excel workbooks in file shares and hard-drives...all with critical information about their company’s cybersecurity posture sitting in disconnected silos.  When cybersecurity is being managed in Excel it can take days and weeks to pull the information together for customer audits, Board meetings, and due diligence.  It's time to break up with Excel and manage cybersecurity a whole new way.
