One question

Q: How do CISOs overcome internal challenges to improve security?

A: Cyber attacks have shifted from denial of service events to the theft of corporate data and intellectual property. This means that organizations need to move from traditional, non-dynamic, policy-based frameworks to actively finding threats and protecting their data. To achieve this in the most cost-effective way, security and IT operations need to overcome turf wars and share information and processes. One of my customers, a financial institution, has been struggling to clear this organizational hurdle. Only a top-down mandate for the departments to collaborate has enabled them to move toward converged security.
