Comic: The CIOs Avengers

CIOs like to hand-pick their best teams, but not everyone can get this lucky with talent.

Re: Looks like he didn't apply the latest patches
"A business that is looking to remain profitable in the short term will only deploy a capability that is deemed necessary to maintain the image/brand of a business. However, a business that is in the market for the long term will deploy solutions that might add to the cost side but enable it to remain out of media light for negative news. The security officer would be the best professional to offer their suggestions."

Brian, yes security officers has to be looked into that angle too.

Re: Looks like he didn't apply the latest patches
I tend to side towards the suggestive and preemptive role. A business that is looking to remain profitable in the short term will only deploy a capability that is deemed necessary to maintain the image/brand of a business. However, a business that is in the market for the long term will deploy solutions that might add to the cost side but enable it to remain out of media light for negative news. The security officer would be the best professional to offer their suggestions.

Re: Looks like he didn't apply the latest patches
" good point about the focus that is required in the security function. The security officer has to deal with many trade-offs, lock down the environment too-much and productivity ceases to exist, and not enabling the right level of protection causes the bad guys to enter. The role is related to other titles as well for instance, the vision or standard that the security offices hopes to implement will need to be communicated to the entire team/organization. "

Brian, he is just like a watch police or whether he has any role in suggesting solutions or products in advance as a part of defensive mechanism.
