The Continuous Journey of a Successful Security Strategy: Top 10 Recommendations for Organisations
This Market Perspective presents one of the themes that emerged at IDC and Conferenz's New Zealand CIO Summit in June 2019 at SkyCity, Auckland. Security was a key theme, with a range of plenary keynotes, roundtable discussions, and breakout seminars dedicated to the topic.
This report discusses why security is hard, what security threats are front of mind, and where organisations currently stand. It provides 10 recommendations for organisations to consider when seeking to set up a successful security strategy.
"Organisations must move beyond perimeter-based security strategies toward ones where data is at the centre," says Chayse Gorton, ANZ IT Services market analyst. Gorton says, to achieve a data focused security strategy, "organisations must place a greater focus on how to protect data regardless of where on the network or on what device it resides."
