Too often organizations play roulette with their legacy systems, which is fine until it’s not. If organizations can’t kick their legacy software habit, they better be prepared to protect it. CISOs will inevitably need more budget to maintain the software and protect the data within it, which may ultimately cost more than the more current version. Given the higher risks and costs, CISOs should just say “no” to legacy software.
CISO Street recently moderated a virtual CISO panel and asked panelists to share their perspectives on current cyber trends and challenges. In this video, Jason Lewkowicz, Global CISO for Cognizant, and Heather Hinton, CISO for RingCentral, discuss the risks and challenges of staying on legacy systems.
