Holistic security: Joining the cyber dots

Presenter: Geraint Jones (OCG)

Effective application of ‘security’ requires the combination of many distinct and often (operationally and organisationally) unrelated components: appropriate physical access controls to premises; effective and safe communications methods to allow mobile and remote working; robust authentication of users; effective HR management; policies and procedures; separation and segregation of roles – the list goes on. And they are all dependent on users understanding and buying into the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of it all.

Recognising the increasing shift in focus on data security and privacy, and the organic way that discrete projects tend to work, how do we ensure a coherent and consistent approach to the security of our organisation and its data?
