The 11th episode of the Cybersecurity and Geopolitical Podcast explores the current state of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. With May 9th being Russia's World War II "Victory Day" holiday, geopolitical experts expect more action.
In Episode 9 of The Cybersecurity and Geopolitical Podcast, Ian Thornton-Trump, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Cyjax, and Gareth Corfield, Security and Legal Correspondent at The Register, review the current conflict between Russia and Ukraine and discuss the ongoing “cyber war” in the region.
Establishing command and control gives the power to professionals so they can properly assess the risks and determine which threats pose the greatest danger and must be considered a high security priority. Authority also requires that they identify potential threats that may be considered “acceptable risks” to the organization – meaning they are worth keeping an eye on, but don’t warrant a significant security investment.
The rise in global security incidents, diminished budgets and downsized security programs have left organizations to deal with security risks that are neither well-understood nor consistently addressed. Executives around the world feel confident that they’re winning the high-stakes game of information security despite the growing number of obstacles, according to The Global State of Information Security® Survey2013 by PwC U.S. in conjunction with CIO and CSO magazines.
