The board strikes back
Recent data breaches have scared Board members – in particular the TalkTalk incident in October 2015, and the aggressive media coverage that surrounded it.
Still, even in response to Board level demands, many large organisations continue to focus on IT point solutions, looking for some imaginary tactical silver bullet that would make the problem disappear.
In our opinion, this is a problem deeply rooted in corporate governance, organisational and cultural matters, which requires a fundamental rethinking and rewiring of information security practices, driven by the Board itself. Responding tactically to data breaches is simply not good enough anymore.
