Softcat give their point of view on the obstacles faced in cyber security, and the necessity of the C-Suite to synchronise with the IT department

Prominent UK technology provider, Softcat, have given their view on why the C-suite and IT need to align when it comes to cyber security. Published by way of Fluent, Softcat’s dynamic new IT thought leadership platform, the article looks at the subject from a new angle.

For the most part, articles concerning cyber security are almost always written from the viewpoint of the cyber security team and Softcat are highlighting that to do so is to not get the full picture. As a result, Adam Louca, Chief Technologist Security, wrote this article with the goal of positively shifting the focus.

Louca explains his thinking saying, “I think it’s time to change the way we speak about cyber security”. And continues, “Boards are informed they need to continue investing in the next whizbang solution, be scared of the latest attack vector, or face the wrath of a nation state threat actor. What about if we imagine we are no longer IT professionals but have transitioned into the role of a member of the leadership team?”

Further into the article he poses the question of what a more balanced exchange of information would look like and how it might transform the response of the C-suite to the overall benefit of the business.
