Managing security is like 'washing your hands with soap.' Stopping the spread of ‘germs’ is everyone's responsibility

With the explosion of data and cloud, there have been a significant increase in customer data security breaches amongst some of the biggest brands of the world. Though the digital era opens up many opportunities, it also presents some new risks. John and Felicity raise the very real issue of security breaches that can come from any area of your business. It can no longer be the concern of just the IT department. At the same time customers are more digitally savvy and care deeply about protecting their own data, therefore companies that follow good practices can even turn security into a competitive advantage. 

The duo acknowledge that security is hard, but that the consequences- and the cost of not taking steps to Prevent, Detect, Respond, and Recover from security breaches, are harder. In this talk, Felicity and John present the ThoughtWorks Security Framework for Digitally-Led Businesses and provide practical advice so that organisations can ‘own security, so that security does not own them.’
