Description

Last week, I talked with Wall Street Journal reporter Ben DiPietro about the persistent communications gap between the data center and the board room when it comes to recognizing and tackling security threats: In almost every breach situation after his company completes a forensic analysis, Mr. Dakin said the chief executive or chief financial officer pulls him aside and says if he had better information earlier he would have made smarter and quicker decisions. "They are intimating that their tech teams are just not talking about cyber risk in terms of business impact."

But when he speaks with the IT people, Mr. Dakin said he gets a different story, "that my boss just doesn't get it and we are stuck here with outdated tools, outdated systems and we are not prepared to defend ourselves."
