How CSOs Can Help CIOs Talk Security to the Board

Most CIOs are not security experts, but in the board room they need to be. Thanks to the CSO, , they don't have to go it alone. Behind the scenes, they can help prepare the CIO, offering advice on how to interpret the company's threat levels, boiling down the most relevant information and communicating it, early and often, so the C-suite will pay attention.

Self-encrypting drives

As data becomes ever more mobile there's an increased risk that it can fall into the wrong hands. And, while there are many technologies to try and prevent this from happening, or tracking a device down if it's lost or stolen, the ultimate solution to data security is preventing it leaving the storage device in the first place.

R.I.P. Email?

R.I.P. email. Well nearly. While the number of email accounts continues to grow rapidly, I'm predicting that email, as we know it today, will fade away as the world's most pervasive form of digital communications—possibly within three to five years.

Pervasive technologies and its implication on security

All of us are, to some extent, slaves to technology. Judicious use of technology is mandated. Human kind has, so far, been naïve in adopting technology with the presumption that it will always be used in the right spirit, but we have seen it being used in the wrong context over and over again.

How Can Organisations Deal Intelligently with Information Security Breaches?

Data breaches are happening more frequently, compromising larger volumes of data than ever before. We seem to hear about new data breaches every day.
