Agile Security: What is it and how do I get there?
In a rapidly evolving IT landscape, technology trends such as Cloud and BYOD sweep the enterprise, compelling IT departments to move with the agility of a start up even as they follow the processes and meet the demands of a traditional enterprise. The challenge for IT departments lies in finding ways to manage IT security and mitigate risk creatively, without keeping innovation at bay. While the right security practices lay the foundation for good security management, the real key to success is having a security programme that evolves in tandem with the organisation itself, thus leaving a lot less work to be done in adapting to the inherent risks in new environments. Agility is therefore crucial to successful security management. Security cannot be seen as getting in the way of business initiatives. It must be an enabler — one that is embedded across all aspects of an organisation.
