Make Security Everyone's Business

Both CIOs and CISOs must be aware of all enterprise vulnerabilities and stand ready to powerfully enable employees to communicate, act and share securely. Because of the recent hacks on Anthem, Sony, Target, and Home Depot, every company is waking up to the fact that they not only have to be a technology company, but that they also have to become a data security company in order to be competitive with other players in their market. Bottom line: everyone handling enterprise data across the company must be equipped to do so, and be held accountable every step of the way.

In a world without walls, protecting highly sensitive files and data is much harder than it used to be. Ultimately, today's CIOs must operate with the philosophy that leaks will happen, that the perimeter is inherently porous and sensitive user data will travel, whether they like it or not. Not to mention, forcing employees into a restrictive workflow is a losing proposition that runs the risk of pushing users to go rogue. Just look at the industry that has sprung up around protecting against shadow IT.

In the face of this reality, the question becomes, what should be top of mind for CIOs and CISOs everywhere? With 2014 dubbed the year of the data breach, and the severity of attacks already intensifying in 2015, Robin Daniels, chief marketing officer at Veradocs, has outlined five unique strategies for both CIOs and CISOs to innovate, excel and inspire change to protect both the enterprise and individuals from the inevitable — even after the inevitable happens.
