Remember the good ol’ days – waaay back to a year like, say, 2002 – when a company’s security vendor got all the heat for a systems compromise? These days, there’s plenty of blame to go around: For starters, organizations need to take a good, close look at what internal users are doing to let the bad guys in.
In this “TechConnections: Five Minutes With …” installment, Tom Resau explains how “the rules” of information security are profoundly transforming. In the past, it was all about protecting hardware and software. Today, it’s still about that. But it’s also about staying on top of the constantly shifting perimeters of your enterprise and minimizing risks brought on by internal user-employees. (Note we say “minimizing” here. Not “eliminating.”) Listen to our conversation about information security assurance.
