Building A Security 'Culture' by Gareth O'Sullivan


Building a Security ‘Culture’ Rushing Towards Digital Transformation Breaches. Despite significant investments in security technology and processes, attackers still gain access to protected data on a regular basis. IT builds higher and higher walls around the locations where data lives but attacks persist. Mass migration to cloud computing has improved scalability, lowered costs, and freed IT from having to manage the application environment. However, this means cloud becomes a target for attackers, and it becomes more risky to store sensitive data there. BYOD makes users’ devices a target as well. Obviously from a security standpoint, the greater number of devices there are to manage, the greater the risk of attack. What to do, and where to start?
