Why balancing security with IT operations demands a holistic approach

The evolving threat landscape is disrupting the delicate balance between security and effective IT operations.

IT leaders have sought for years to strike a balance between security and effective IT operations. Security teams would strive to ensure risks are kept to a minimum, while IT operations functions would aim to provide the best level of service to their users. Finding the right balance between these two objectives was an ongoing challenge.

In the past few years, however, the security threat has evolved. Both the volume and complexity of security threats have increased, just as digital technology has become central to business operations and strategy. This calls for a more holistic approach to security and IT operations, argues Jeff Kilford, director of enterprise sales at Intel.

In this discussion with Pete Swabey, Tech Monitor‘s editor-in-chief, Kilford explains why recent developments in the threat landscape have disrupted the existing balance between IT operations and security, and how organisations can develop a holistic approach in both the short and medium term.
