SOFTCAT SHARE THEIR PERSPECTIVE ON THE CHALLENGES OF CYBER SECURITY, AND HOW THE C-SUITE NEEDS TO ALIGN WITH THE IT DEPARTMENT

One of the UK’s leading technology providers, Softcat, have shared their perspective on why the C-suite and IT need to get on the same page when it comes to cyber security. The article, published via Softcat’s dynamic new IT thought leadership platform, Fluent, provides a fresh viewpoint on the subject. 

While most other articles on cyber security are almost solely written from the perspective of the cyber security team, Softcat are keen to highlight that they’re often missing half the story. Therefore, this piece, written by Adam Louca, Chief Technologist Security, aims to positively shift the focus.

Louca explains: “I think it’s time to change the way we speak about cyber security”. He continues: “Boards are informed they need to continue investing in the next whizbang solution, be scared of the latest attack vector, or face the rath 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?”

The article goes on to ask what a more balanced communication would look like and how it might change the way the C-suite responds – benefitting the entire business.
