Typical Business Landscape : Often we find the following when we meet with clients: Most IT Pro’s and their staffs are set up to fail… Most have 1 person, lucky to have 3 More than 6 is an outlier. Nobody is a Security Expert in ALL categories.
The central problem is covering the volume of information…you need people with expertise and the right technology to work effectively together monitoring it all. We are finding that in many, if not most organizations, IT Security and Risk Compliance are fighting for resources. IT/Executive Leadership haven’t kept up with the changes in the security landscape.
Compliance thinks compliance is covers their security needs. “Compliance keeps us from being sued.” IT Security usually doesn’t want to admit they can’t keep the business secure ….”We are as secure as I can make us”. Often, the Risk/Compliance and Leadership Team hear this statement and believe “we are secure”. Not true!!!
