@GordyPls At the customer service level, I find that staff are usually curious and then apologetic that their systems can’t cope.

There’s some fascinating stuff in Rothery’s presentation about the role of government in helping SMEs. Can’t summarise easily.

via Janetter for Mac

Government is realising that they can’t set SMEs adrift, they need to be brought up to enterprise levels of security.

via Janetter for Mac

Rothery has been interviewing orgs re what they want from the new Aust Cyber Security Centre. Maturity levels vary a lot.

via Janetter for Mac

Rothery: Some CIOs’ attitude that “It’s my data ‘cos it’s on my network” makes them think they judge the risks to data. Wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes @swearyanthony “Scrolling back” is his library’s reshelving policy…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Rothery outlines an old-school (but sensible) framing of analysing risk as risk to confidentiality, availability or integrity.

via Janetter for Mac

Rothery: Companies with good dialog between execs and CISOs are those where there’s a common language for dollar value of risk.

via Janetter for Mac

Rothery: The key question here is “Who owns the risk?”

Next up: Mike Rothery, First Assistance Secretary, National Security Resilience Policy, Attorney-General’s Dept.

@ncoghlan_dev Thanks. This Gartner event usually provides a good management-friendly summary of current thinking.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ncoghlan_dev

It really is characterising the traditional approach as anti-business. Like saying “You’re not a tream player.”

via Janetter for Mac

Interesting propaganda aspect to a risk-management focus being characterised as a “business-focused” security.

via Janetter for Mac

Proctor presents a new ratio, traditional technology-focused to business-focused security staff…..instagram.com/p/sGcODoCFpZ/fm

@chvrles Good point, but it’s the people who create the risks to that data, presumably, by their risky behaviours? I shall ask later.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chvrles

Procter: “Why does the security officer always get fired? … There is no such thing as perfect protection.ec

via Janetter for Mac

Will we be seeing anyone stage or in videos today who isn’t a middle-aged white man? Anyone at all?

Next up: Paul Procter, Gartner Chief of Research. [I’m meeting him at 1100.]

via Janetter for Mac

Walls: “Why are you spending so much on APT protection? Because it’s the threat du jour.” Management fear, not risk assessment.

via Janetter for Mac

“People-Centric Security” (PCS) is the current buzzword.

via Janetter for Mac

Walls says we need to market the idea of security to employees. Sell them on the idea, stop rewarding them for risky behaviour.

via Janetter for Mac

Walls is promoting the need for empowering people to make their own security decisions. [Sharp intake of breath from CISOs.]

via Janetter for Mac

Walls says our employees don’t take a risk management approach to technology, and it’s our fault for disempowering them.

via Janetter for Mac

Next up: Andrew Walls, Gartner VP.

Last year’s theme was “Reset”, but a reset is useless if the underlying problems aren’t addressed. Note Snowden, Heartbleed.

via Janetter for Mac

Girard is framing every business as a digital business, therefore all risk management is digital risk management.
