Cyber Security

Shifting the discussion surrounding cyber security

Prominent UK technology provider, Softcat, have given their view on why the C-suite and IT need to align when it comes to cyber security. Published by way of Fluent, Softcat’s dynamic new IT thought leadership platform, the article looks at the subject from a new angle.

For the most part, articles concerning cyber security are almost always written from the viewpoint of the cyber security team and Softcat are highlighting that to do so is to not get the full picture. As a result, Adam Louca, Chief Technologist Security, wrote this article with the goal of positively shifting the focus.

Louca explains his thinking saying, “I think it’s time to change the way we speak about cyber security”. And continues, “Boards are informed they need to continue investing in the next whizbang solution, be scared of the latest attack vector, or face the wrath of a nation state threat actor. What about if we imagine we are no longer IT professionals but have transitioned into the role of a member of the leadership team?”

Further into the article he poses the question of what a more balanced exchange of information would look like and how it might transform the response of the C-suite to the overall benefit of the business.

To read Louca’s perspective in full, you can access the article on Fluent – in addition to the wider collection of thought leadership pieces that share Softcat’s views on technological developments throughout the industry.
