The former CEO of Equifax this week appeared before Congress to offer testimony around the data breach which, as of last accounting, compromised the personal details of 145.5 million people. Yet again, an organization with the resources, the budget, and the technical knowledge to protect themselves against incursion finds themselves in a pickle of their own making. Most upsetting, though, is the way former CEO Richard Smith perpetuated the myth that "one IT employee" is to blame.
Proper governance and control in an IT environment should be designed to prevent the failure, or malice, of one employee from crippling your organization.
You should never rely on the competence or capacity of one lone person to ensure your security. Cyber security is a shared responsibility between all of your employees and users. The saying goes, we are more than the sum of our parts, security is all the stronger because of a holistic focus.
If a $13 billion company can’t get their security right, what’s your hope of staying secure?
