Paul Kraus, CEO of Eastwind and other top security executives weigh in with DZone journalist Tom Smith about how the need for better security is affecting the industry.
Here are a few highlights but check out the complete list at DZone
- Encryption is great; however, we’ve seen customers connected directly to malicious websites who can use the tunnel and encryption keys to get to the endpoint. You need visibility into communications to verify they are properly protected.
- Not knowing where all your information and data is. Security professionals work outside of the business unit, causing the business executives do not view security as an integral part of the organization. We must stop letting executives play the “victim” card. Make informed decisions about what investments should be made in security. Ensure senior management and security are on the same page. This typically doesn’t occur until the first major breach. Put your security dollars where the data is.
