Three factors marginalising the CISO role

Where organisations do have a chief information security officer (CISO), the role is typically being marginalised in comparison with other members of the C-suite, according to Jean-Christophe Gaillard , managing director of management consultancy firm Corix Partners. “What a CISO does varies enormously from one organisation to the next, but most are still doing a very technical job and dealing with incidents, so rarely do they have the time, inclination or profile to look at more transformational or strategic matters,” he told the KuppingerCole Cyber Security...

Zero-trust security not an off-the-shelf product

Many security suppliers are releasing products that are claimed to be based on the zero-trust security model, says Paul Simmonds , fellow analyst at KuppingerCole. “But ensure you select products with care,” he told the KuppingerCole Cyber Security Leadership Summit in Berlin. Simmonds warned security leaders to be wary of suppliers’ claims and check whether they are just jumping on the “buzzword bandwagon” and re-badging old products. To be able to discriminate between products, security leaders need to understand what zero trust is and...

CIAM is all about deploying strong solutions that securely capture and manage consumer identities and profile data, as well as safely and responsibly controlling customers’ accessibility to applications and services. A strong CIAM solution...

Key elements to success in consumer identity management

The top thing to keep in mind when embarking on consumer identity projects is to ensure the signing up process is easy, according to John Tolbert, lead analyst at KuppingerCole. “Consumers or citizens just want to get things done and are not overly concerned about the identity piece, but they will abandon the sign-up process if they find it overly burdensome or if it asks for too much information,” he told Consumer Identity World Europe  in Amsterdam.

6 Reasons Why SIEMs Aren’t a Security Analytics Tool

Given all the vendor- and analyst-speak in the security space, it’s often difficult for organizations to know the difference between the marketing hype and reliable technology information.

SIEM software products and services combine security information management (SIM) and security event management (SEM). They provide real-time analysis of...
