CISOs Strike the Right Balance Between Data Security and Availability When They Do This

CISOs Balance Data Security and Availability When They Do This

CISO Panels

Everyone has adjusted to remote work by now, though certain challenges remain eight months into the pandemic. CISOs continue their search for the right balance between data protection and data accessibility. The struggle is real, as the sharp increase in phishing and ransomware attacks indicate. CISOs have better success when they know which data types require access, who needs it, and how will they share it and with whom. This framework lets CISOs overlay strict security and governance controls to ensure employee adherence.

CISO Street recently moderated a virtual CISO panel and asked panelists about their perspectives on current cyber trends and challenges. In this video, Mark Butler, CISO & SVP for MegaplanIT explains how CISOs can mitigate risk when giving employees working remotely access to sensitive data.
