Digital security is not just about reacting to the latest threats; it’s about making security a strategic part of your business strategy. But are we ready to?
“When we walk into that first meeting and first do this, describe your infrastructure for us, tell me where your data is, they can’t. And when they do, we will go off and do our intelligence collection – i.e., let’s look at your digital footprint so I can find out how I’m going to attack you – we’re finding stuff that they haven’t got a clue that they own.”
In this second of a two-part conversation, we resume our discussion with Gartner Consulting security experts Terry Bebbington, Rob Dartnall and Richard Morrell. They dive into the impact of the Internet of Things on our security strategy and operations, how we can make security a more strategic asset , and how Gartner helps clients overcome the ever-shifting challenges of digital security.
If you have not done so already, make sure to check out Part 1 of our conversation, as we learned how security is becoming more and more of a collaborative discipline:
“There is a disconnect – the problems that are in HR are very different to the Finance team, which are very different from the guys who are looking after the payment system. And just bringing people together and having that conversation and actually talking to them about threats to each individual business department and then the global entity, and then it all just comes together and it all starts making sense. And then all realize how they all have to start working together and how those threats are related and how they can solve those problems, usually quite easily by working together, whereas before they were working against each other without even realizing it.”
