I recently recorded a video for Willis Towers Watson about my experiences working in information security in the insurance sector.
Companies live or die by their security, and yet it is a hard problem to solve. Information security is full of talented people who like solving that that sort of challenge, but it’s also full of people who want to challenge us.The threat changes minute by minute, the technology evolves daily, and the regulatory environment and client expectations move nearly as fast.
There are few right answers, and no absolute answers. It’s all about finding the best answers for your business that will work as well tomorrow as they do today. The skills required change constantly to match, so you learn more in security than in almost any other field. That’s a challenge too, but if you want to be involved in how technology is changing the world around us, security is key.
Ten years ago almost nothing was connected, and in ten years’ time, almost everything will be. Whether that is good for the world—and good for business—will come down to security.
