Protect, Detect, Respond. Security principles are timeless

Bottom Line Up Front:

STOP FOCUSING ON PRODUCTS, AND START FOCUSING ON PROTECTION OF INFORMATION AND ASSETS. 

WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PROTECT?  WHAT IS CRITICAL TO THE SURVIVAL OF YOUR BUSINESS & YOUR REPUTATION?

  • This is a CEO issue. IT CANNOT BE DELEGATED TO THE IT DEPARTMENT!
  • The key is PROTECTING INFORMATION, not protecting systems.
  • The DoD admitted that they can’t keep perpetrators out, they can only manage what is accessed. Find out what information is really important – keep asking Why is that?’…
  • The average data breach costs $188 per record. Most breaches involve tens of thousands of records. ($20M+). You are legally required to report a breach.
  • Protect, Detect, Respond. Most don’t have ‘Detect’, which severely limits ‘Respond’. Due diligence and due care apply in determining legal liability.
