Today is a day out of the office at the RSA security summit in London.
The theme of the day is ‘Security Redefined’.
This is the concept of the ‘third platform’ of IT – billions of users, global locations, and many many devices accessing our systems. We can no longer have the strong perimeter based security paradigm where we keep the ‘bad guys’ out, we need to have a security strategy based on detection and risk with the assumption that we can and will suffer compromises.
This is not a new concept, but it is good to hear the ‘security heavy weights’ (or larger less agile firms, take your pick 😉 ) in the industry talking about this.
As usual I’ll be summarising and commenting on the keynotes and other presentations I attend today.
