Designing a Shared Vision with IT and the Business – Scott King – CSP #53

The locus of control has been slipping away from IT teams (and by default Security teams), and this "challenge" to IT governance has accelerated post-covid with a more distributed workforce. The fact that IT governance is eroding as easily and quickly should tell IT and infosec teams that they need to ditch their legacy models of service delivery and adopt an approach that addresses the current business needs and digital transformations many companies are undertaking. The security implications of this are significant in that security programs are not typically sized nor funded to deal with one technology approach yet alone two. Scott King, CISO at Encore Capital Group joins the podcast to discuss strategies to remain agile in the face of rapid change.
