Read this month’s Computer Business Review – Security Matters

Security is like environmental management - you can ignore it for a long time and hope your inaction carries no consequences. Or you can grasp the nettle and hope it doesn't sting.

By Cbr Rolling Blog

For those who choose to ignore security there is a certain comfort to be had. This is the ‘what I don’t know won’t harm me approach.’
The attractiveness of living in blissful ignorance and one of the reasons companies refuse to address security is that once one starts to explore it one very quickly can see nothing except risks and security vulnerabilities. Although this could be the result of spending more time speaking with security firms.

This month’s CBR magazine spoke with some individuals with serious security credentials.
Brett Wahlin, is CISO of HP – he is in the unique position of being an end user inside a security technology supplier. Read the fascinating interview.

Peter Jopling, is CTO the security business of IBM UK+I and he talks about being pre-emptive and not reactive.

Have you been breached? Are you figuring out the best way to let people know? Or do you believe your company is secure and you want to keep it that way
