How can consolidating security across independent subsidiaries improve security processes in an organization?

As we transformed 21st Century Fox into “New Fox”, Fox Corporation, after the Disney acquisition we consolidated both the IT teams and the security team to be uniform across the board. Everyone's been over the moon with this whole transition. It has skyrocketed our ability to secure things and exponentially increased visibility across systems through consolidation and replatforming. Not only that, but I think the businesses are pleased with all of the modern applications that they've transitioned to. Our CEO, Lachlan, has also made it very clear he wants everyone operating in a "One Fox" mindset across the company. I think that has gone a long way at the senior executive level and with the technology systems to make it understood that we're going to have consistent ways of working across the board and a focus on the overall FOX mission. Our businesses have moved from independently managed on-prem systems into consolidated SaaS platforms. This has allowed us to dramatically improve our efficiency from a cyber standpoint and it provided the unique opportunity to re-think security for every system and workflow, as well as design systems with a “secure defaults” configuration. The company transition provided a once in a lifetime opportunity to replatform the company and cyber took full advantage of this.
