Managing security is like ‘washing your hands with soap’. Stopping the spread of ‘germs’ is everyone's responsibility
John and Flick raise the very real issue of digital security as an extension of Risk Management in a digital business. They argue that customers care about security and we are in fact, all customers. We have to acknowledge that we will exist in a constant state of acceptable risk, because absolute security is unattainable, but we can take steps to mitigate this risk, and have a data recovery and continuity plan in place.
The duo acknowledge that security is hard, but that the consequences- and the cost- of not taking steps to prevent, detect, respond, and recover from digital security breaches, are harder. Flick and John cover each of these areas with practical advice so that you can ‘own security, so that security does not own you.’
