We must secure our organization’s processes regardless of what tech they run on. Originally, security leaders had leverage. We controlled the horizontal. We controlled the vertical. And if people wanted to work, they needed to follow our rules to access corporate apps and services. But then came Cloud apps, and BYOD, and consumerization, pushing security beyond our outer limits. Security happens where psychology and technology intersect. The everyday decisions of employees increase or decrease an organization’s risk.
Employees don’t need us. And by employee, I mean more than end-users. This is a broader conversation; including software developers, IT engineers, DevOps practitioners, and more. To get people to opt in and follow secure practices, we turn to behavior science. IT security leaders must offer them a compelling experience. In this panel we will discuss how to carefully balance the need for security, compliance, and efficient resource management to ensure that your cloud environment is both secure and effective.
