    Security Paradigm Turned on Its Head

    The changing security landscape has made it clear that enforcement and policy control, while essential to security needs, are not sufficient when dealing with some of the biggest risks for IT. The biggest risks come from the actors that have the know-how and will to defeat these controls. This is why the existing security paradigm needs to be turned on its head with a focus on finding and rooting out these threats.

    Organizations need to reevaluate their IT security investments to see whether they match this new reality or if they are geared toward maintaining the status quo. The following slides include pointers that will help you evaluate new projects and align your activities with the new landscape.

Security is a hot topic today. Only a few years ago, security was on the back burner of most IT departments, seen as a necessary evil with few executives ever exposed to it. With the recent spate of high-profile attacks and ensuing losses, IT security is now viewed as the difference between an organization's ability to carry out its mission and going out of business. This is why security is a topic frequently appearing on board meeting agendas and piquing the interest of C-suite executives.

While funding and awareness have increased, it is unclear if organizations are making investments in keeping up with the evolving security landscape. A lot of the newly available funding and resources have been allocated to the existing funding gaps and "perceived" deficiencies in an organization's security posture. This is why IT security is a $58B market today but organizations are not any safer than they were a few years ago. In this slideshow, Shel Sharma, marketing manager at security startup Cyphort, discusses the evolution in the security landscape and how to align new security budgets and resources with this new paradigm vs. investing in more of the same old security.
