As a business grows, different security risks arise which demands for different solutions. What worked a year ago might not be the best approach this time around. One common challenge found between Information Technology (IT) and Line of Business leaders is having different goals as they relate to securing the cloud.
While LOB leads focus on balancing agility and security of their increasingly mobile workforce, Information Technology (IT) people – more specifically Information Security (IS) teams have a wider responsibility; to enforce a business-wide security policy for all people who access and use the network via the cloud.
Nowadays, IS leaders are challenged against the business environment of apps, mobility and the “always-on” nature of access to the network.
CISOs and IS leaders are clearly worried, as more people and apps move to the cloud. But they have no clear insight into the risks when accessing the network through the cloud. Making it a LOB problem isn’t viable either, as the LOB leadership may need to balance security against agility. Which is exactly why security feature sets benefit LOB Leaders.
