Wendy Goucher, Security Empowerment Consultant & Columnist
It is the business of the information security professional to enable the business to keep their sensitive information secure. However the first step is often the one that trips us up. Do staff really understand what is sensitive and why? Why that is their problem? Are you sure? One recent survey found that 61% of data loss was believed to be due to the action of an insider, 98% of office staff did not see corporate data and its security as their problem. This talk will endeavor to give you a bit of insight into this fundamental problem.
Wendy started out as a Social Scientist and began researching information security as an antidote to the tedium of routine work. Now, much of her effort is directed at persuading businesses to move responsibility for information security from the sticky grasp of IT and onto everyone’s desk.
