BCS IT Now – June 2015 : More Control, Less Risk
This article by Neil Cordell in the BCS IT Now publication discusses the importance of technologists focusing more on threats and controls and less on risk in order to build an effective Cyber Security Practice.
It shines a light on the typically risk focused nature of the industry and why shifting that focus onto the implementation of effective controls to protect an organisation against real threats is key in effective Cyber Security. It also discuss the disconnect in viewpoints between technologists and business users – and how this can lead to a dangerous position, whereby an organisation develops a false sense of protection against cyber threats and cyber-crime.
