IT Security Governance: Securing your Organisation from the Inside Out
High levels of accountability and transparency are vital to the way organisations handle and share information, yet these are all too often absent. Staff are frequently unaware of who is responsible for data security, nor whether any particular individual will be held accountable if things go wrong. The danger of this type of complacency can be shattered through consideration of just some key questions that underpin the importance of security planning:
- what would happen if you lost your customer database to a rival firm?
- how would you respond if information that appears embarrassing or libellous was leaked to the media?
- how much money would you lose if your IT systems became the victim of malicious attack?
If you’re in any doubt about the significance of these questions, then please watch our case study where we re-enact the theft of $400 million of intellectual property that was then given to a rival firm. Adequate planning and a simple security control may have prevented the theft.
