Security Chiefs Pitch Actionable Strategies to Meet Big Impact IT Trends for 2013

Latest SBIC Report Reveals Accelerated Enterprise Adoption of Big Data, Mobile, Social Media and Cloud Computing Introduce Significant Gaps in Information Security Programs

BEDFORD, Mass., Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 

News Summary:

  • A special report from the Security for Business Innovation Council (SBIC) urges rapid-fire changes to information security strategies to take on the transformational forces of cloud computing, social media, mobile, and Big Data.
  • As enterprises intensify their adoption of advanced technologies, it is exposing significant gaps in information security programs such as lack of business skills and relationships, supply chain management and tech-savvy action plans.
  • Recommendations outline how security teams can reduce risk through rapid innovation.

Full Story:

RSA®, The Security Division of EMC® Corporation (NYSE: EMC), released a special report from the Security for Business Innovation Council (SBIC) that assesses how disruptive innovations such as Big Data analytics, cloud computing, enterprise mobility and social media will transform enterprise IT and hammer away at the foundations of information security strategies in 2013.   

The Security for Business Innovation Council's latest report, titled "Information Security Shake-Up: Disruptive Innovations to Test Security's Mettle in 2013," is derived from the expertise and real-world experiences of 19 security leaders, who represent some of the world's most forward-thinking security organizations.

The Council's latest report details four strategies to help enterprises adapt information security programs to help enable business innovation over the next 12 months. These strategies include how to boost risk and business skills, court middle management, tackle IT supply chain issues and build tech-savvy action plans. The Council's guidance will help enterprises face the impact of the technology adoption of cloud computing, social media, mobile and Big Data. The Council also outlines the major impacts of these trends for security teams and how to address them.

  1. Cloud Computing – The accelerated adoption of cloud will push security concerns to the forefront.  In order to meet requirements, enterprises will need to find ways to effectively evaluate their providers' security controls - which also includes implementing continuous monitoring.
  2. Social Media – Security teams will need comprehensive policies and effective security controls to actively manage the risks of social media.  A good social media risk management strategy will need to involve a multidisciplinary team.
  3. Mobile – The risks of mobile adoption continue to increase forcing security teams to have to carefully manage these risks to reap the rewards without major incidents.  Security teams will need to build strategies with the understanding that the end-point is not trusted.
  4. Big Data – The value of Big Data will require security teams to build out multi-year plans to properly evolve their security management model.  These plans will enable security teams to utilize Big Data to detect and more effectively remediate security threats.  To be the most effective security teams must also be involved in any new Big Data projects from the onset in order to understand the impending risks and develop the strategies to manage them.

Executive Quotes:

Eddie Schwartz, Chief Information Security Officer, RSA, The Security Division of EMC

"Information security must evolve in 2013 from reactive perimeter and signature-based approaches, to risk-based programs that protect the most important business assets in whatever context they may exist – cloud, mobile, or traditional data center.  To succeed security leaders must invest in intelligence-driven strategies that harness the power of Big Data analytics and agile decision support."

Dr. Martijn Dekker, Senior Vice President, Chief Information Security Officer, ABN Amro

"Information security isn't just about IT anymore. Trends like cloud computing and consumerization are quickly extending the information-security role. It's about business. It's about people. It's about risk management."

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are rapidly redefining traditional integration approaches and their reliance on proprietary connectors. ...
