The State of IT and Cybersecurity

Jun 11, 2018

As cybersecurity has grown and become more critical in recent years, it increasingly has become viewed as a discipline separate from general IT. In many companies, the security department works independently of the IT department; in some companies, the chief information security officer (CISO) reports to someone other than the head of IT.

This report from Dark Reading shows today's IT groups play a critical role in information security — a role that is more extensive and more integral than people might have thought. This is especially true in areas such as endpoint security, patch management, and identity and access control, as well as the security of applications, mobile devices, and the electronic supply chain.
