Secure South West 10 – Panel session – What’s the problem – technology or how we use it?
Today’s technology landscape presents an ever-widening range of devices that people may use for both personal purposes and business benefits.
However, security demands often mean that the technology needs to be controlled to reduce the risks in an organisational context. This can represent a barrier to staff (who wish to do things that require reducing the security) and an overhead for IT administrators (who have to manage an increasingly wider range of devices). As a consequence, we have a conflict between the inherent capabilities of the technology, the desires of its users, and needs of the business. The panel considers how such conflicting demands can be managed and resolved!
The session was part of Secure South West 10 at the University of Plymouth on 13 February 2018.
