Is the information security industry having a midlife crisis?
The information security industry is hot right now, but it’s hot because it’s failing. The daily announcements about breaches and lost data confirm that criminals are winning the security battle, but how can InfoSec reposition itself in order to win the war?
Last month, Tsion Gonen, chief strategy officer at SafeNet spoke at the CIO Summit in Boston hosted by CDM Media. His presentation, “InfoSec’s Midlife Crisis & Your Future” opened with the blatant recognition that “We are totally failing.”
The upside to the torrent of daily breach announcements is that the industry is in the spotlight. Everyone is racing to find the most innovative solution to the information security problem.
