Re: Is security creeping out of the shadows yay or nay?
So my nickel Canadian......
I think it is creeping out of the shadows but believe that is being caused by all the noise, etc. being generated by Ransomware and a lot of the new regulations that are now facing organizations (GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA, etc....). Sarbannes-Oxley started us down the path but the latest additions have pushed us over the top.
Iin the past, we could talk to management about Security and the issues (the risk, the threat), etc. and were mostly ignored. We did get attention if there was a breach (either ours or close to home) but then when the buzz died down so did the funds and the attention.
Board audit committees are actively asking questions about how organizations are protecting themselve and staying within the letter of the law.
