Is cybersecurity a collaborative issue? After the Colonial pipeline issue, suddenly Zero Trust becomes a mandate along with encryption - but it is not a magic bullet, it is a journey.
Yes it is a collaboration issue. I have seen too many places where IT and security do not get along. If you can work the magic and achieve collaboration then you are doing well and doing the right thing. I have always tried to show how, as an INFOSEC professional, that we can work together as a team and achieve a better security posture than before and how my efforts are to help them be successful and not hinder them from moving forward.
Although I also believe cybersecurity is a collaboration effort, most of these breaches can be avoid with basic cybersecurity hygiene. In order to achieve this, INFOSEC professionals should have the ability to enforce policies from a top-down approach. Policies in place verifying business-approve controls will provide enough hygiene and shift the focus to more advanced and persistent threads.
@Deshaun Thank you for your question.
I am interested in why your post had a link to (kabosucoin.net/)
Was it deliberate or did it follow you when you typed in your question?
There are plenty of books either online or guides on the subject, everyone has to start somewhere, so if you are really interested follow your nose, and be inquisitive and go hunting such information down. Or seek out a mentor to assist you and guide you.
