IT security failures: Detection and correction

VIDEO  | 

Most companies focus their efforts on preventing IT security incidents. But too much attention on this front alone may mean attack detection and correction isn't given enough focus. In today's mobile, global environment with its sophisticated perpetrators, board members need to assume their company's preventive controls will fail at some point.

During times of crisis, board members can make a real difference in how effectively their companies handle security breaches. In this NACD BoardVision episode, Daimon Geopfert, RSM's national leader for security and privacy consulting, looks at IT security failures that could have been prevented through proper attack detection and correction. He discusses several key issues, including:

  • The critical questions board members need to ask their CIO and IT leadership
  • The structure of modern attack methods
  • The features of an optimal, robust security risk management process design
  • The best ways board members can leverage their crisis management experience in the event of a breach
