It is not simply important to understand the value of security within I.T., it is paramount.
With so many other aspects of I.T. driving business it seems bold to refer to it as “paramount”. It is bold, but it is also true in every in every sense of the word. Every single piece of your organization is vulnerable because every facet of I.T. is affected by security or lack thereof.
With the I.O.T. world we live in today the security entry points within an environment are growing exponentially. This is music to hacker’s ears. Whether or not we want to admit it, new doors are being made available to cyber threats and in many cases by no fault of the CISO or I.T. Director. Just as it is with our personal health and the modern medicine we employ, new strains of disease continue to evolve. Others have adapted over time rendering modern medicines useless, it is no different in the cyber world.
What is the value you place on yourself? Your well being?
Do you go to the doctor for regular checkups? Do you wait until you have pneumonia before doing something about it? Just as leading a healthy lifestyle equates to a longer healthier life so too does that approach relative to the health and potential lifespan of your organization.
In many cases people are faced with having to make career decisions or in some cases career changes based on what wasn’t done.
Many pride themselves on creating efficiencies through the implementation of new technology all the while not assigning the proper value to it from a security perspective.
When we’re healthy and feeling good it is easy to assume everything is fine, so I don’t need to go to the doctor or I can make a less than healthy choice. Unlike the human body, technology is less complex, thus we have more ability to control it and avoid detrimental outcomes.
The days of managing firewalls and layering software solutions, while not gone, are certainly in the rear view mirror.
- Do you want to be in the rearview mirror?
- Do you want to change the way you secure your organization?
- Do you want to rise above the turbulent air of firewall manufacturers fighting over who has the best technology?
