Foreword Challenging times, exciting times
It’s already summer and we are halfway through 2011, yet it only seems like yesterday I was announcing to the world the arrival of HP Information Security back in the chill of December. But of course, the world moves on, a lot has happened and information security doesn’t get any less complicated or challenging for our customers and partners.
Since that launch we have held four more extremely successful Information Security Leaders (ISL) events. They were the best yet and featured hugely compelling content, not to mention some lively panel debates. This was particularly true of the discussions around consumerisation, shaping up to be THE issue of 2011.
Which is why we have focused on the topic in a special feature (page 16) which looks at the pros and cons of allowing (or not) employees to use their own smart phones and other devices in the workplace. I believe that in the end it's not a case of if but when this will happen and the sooner we start dealing with the challenge the better – because as you will discover, handled well, consumerisation can also bring benefits to your business.
And business is very much on mind when it comes to getting the security message through to your board. Our feature Getting the message across (page 25) explores the tactics and strategies needed to convince the C-suite why security needs investment and why it's much more than just a case of stopping bad stuff.
Our main interview (page 13) features a man who was one of the standout speakers at ISL this year and who lives and breathes the concept of embedded business security. Paul Wood is the Group Chief Security Officer at Aviva. He has also made it one of the most forward thinking, and from the positive tone of what he says, the most rewarding too.
I am delighted that Dave DeWalt, the CEO of McAfee, agreed to be exclusively interviewed for this issue of Inform (page 18). McAfee is a great partner to HP and in him they have one of the smartest and most forward thinking leaders in our industry. In his four years at the helm, he has transformed the business into a world- class enterprise security provider. Now it has an exciting future as part of Intel which will, I’m sure, deliver further innovation in product and service and continuing strategic technology partnership with HP.
Enjoy the issue.
