Cyber Security Relationship
Like many of my fellow movie goers, I left the theater that night with a gift. Adam McKay had revealed for me timeless insights applicable to many aspects of my life, including my own chosen line of work, IT. For me, the arc of Cal and Ricky’s relationship mapped to the story cyber security’s relationship to IT, particularly over the last decade. For much of the last 30 years, cyber security, represented by Carl, has been an afterthought, a bolt-on to the digital agenda. But the reality is that any wins for automation, digitalization and IT in general, represented by Ricky, were all underpinned by the basic disciplines of cyber security including protection, segmentation, disaster recovery, identity authentication, etc.
But over the last 10 years, cyber security has become increasingly uncomfortable as the threat landscape evolved quickly and new attack vectors seemed to emerge almost daily.
It has seemed to CISCOs the world over that cyber security should, at least occasionally, be pulled forward from the back of the back office to get a little luvin’ from the board. Unfortunately, CIO’s have been trying to get that same board luvin’ for decades and haven’t been really gracious about acting as a slingshot for their cyber security colleague’s careers.
Just as Cal’s push to outshine Ricky seemed inevitable, cyber security has tried to push its way onto the board agenda, sometimes rather awkwardly around the back of or away from the overall IT agenda. This competition for board attention has led to a few wins for CISCOs, but ultimately has created an extra obstacle for the digital transformation agenda overall.
