Welcome to the August 2016 Newsletter.

The Internet of Things, cloud computing and BYOD represent some of the biggest security challenges to our IT infrastructure - but where ultimately does the responsibility lie in meeting these threats? For Adam Boone, Chief Marketing Officer at Certes Networks, cyber security is currently failing to keep up with these trends. In his article in this issue Adam states that “some of the responsibility has to lie with the C-suite. Why are cyber security experts not involved from day one in every strategic decision? Why are businesses still expecting the security team to take responsibility yet leaving deployment in the hands of multiple departments, from application development onwards?”

This is echoed by Martyn Williams, MD of COPA-DATA UK in his article on the security steps manufacturers need to take to stay safe in the cloud. For Martyn “The only way of taking advantage of the benefits of IoT and the cloud is to stay vigilant and use industry best practice. Industrial security is no longer the IT department’s concern, but a 24/7 job for everyone, including those in the boardroom.” The Internet of Things will require the vigilance of everyone it seems, a subject also explored this month by Larry Augustin, CEO of SugarCRM, who writes that “As the technology world looks to the future and the potential that the IoT holds, the need for businesses to maintain a secure infrastructure is set to increase, exponentially.“ Things ain’t what they used to be - and our approach to cyber security needs to evolve accordingly.
