From the Front Lines: 5 Best Practices for Application Defense in Depth

Everyone knows applications are the lifeblood of the enterprise, but as the threats multiply and come at an ever-faster rate, protecting those applications becomes a massive challenge. Layer in the issues associated with moving applications to the cloud, using open source code, implementing rapid release cycles, and being forced to use legacy apps when the development team is long gone, and it's easy to see that application security can be a thankless, endless job. 

Layered security, or defense-in-depth, is an admirable goal. The problem is, how do you achieve it? We've been on the front lines for years, finding what works and what doesn't. In the process we have distilled five best practices that will help enterprises of any size tackle the thorny problem of application security in a dynamic world where change is the only constant. 

A combination of defenses at the edge, in the network and inside the applications themselves forms the core of the best practices. Layered on top are two additional practices that make all the difference: full real-time visibility with analytics, to help beleaguered security analysts quickly distinguish real threats from noise and take action based on full context; and a consumption model that allow the enterprise to quickly, easily and cost-effectively move protections to where they will do the most good. The result? Vastly improved application security, effective remediation, and a DevSecOps model that works.

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION - A REALITY CHECK

The majority of large companies embraced technology-enabled transformation to re-ignite growth and stop losing share to smaller, more nimble players. But what is the real status of their digital transformation journey? How many are past the tipping point of broader transformation and how many suffer from "perpetual proof of concept" syndrome?

Looking beyond the hype of press releases we may find a few revealing insights: 

  • In the age of "marketing of one", customer intimacy is paramount. Yet many companies lack customer data platforms to consistently engage across channels.
  • Agile, user centric approaches are essential to deliver solutions at speed and fuel innovation. Yet many companies lack automation capabilities to follow a true DevOps approach.
  • Algorithms and Machine Learning deliver competitive advantage by complementing conventional business wisdom with new and often unique insights. Yet many companies lack the architectures to capitalize on their own internal data.
  • In the pursuit of operational efficiency, RPA adoption is now considered table stake. Yet many companies follow a tactical, department-driven implementation approach, which leaves behind a complex landscape of point solutions.

    In this interactive session we will explore these examples in more depth, identifying the capabilities needed for change at scale- and ultimately differentiating true digital leaders from the rest of the pack.

CIO's Got Talent: Finding, Growing & Retaining the Best People

While new technology and solutions can help CIOs make more, faster and better decisions for an organization, nothing will take the place of a highly talented workforce. CIOs need to be great recruiters of talent but even more importantly growing the skills and capabilities of their team providing engaging and challenging opportunities for people. Competitive compensation is important for retaining great talent but so is a work environment where individual growth and development are front of mind and not an after thought. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Highly skilled employees want an environment where they can grow their skills and feel appropriately challenged. 
  2. Finding the best people, inside and outside of your company, and then providing a path to individual excellence is a key responsibility of CIOs.

The Importance of Engaging CISOs in Digital Transformation

The digital transformation challenge is significant for all, but CIOs need to understand the importance of engaging their CISO as well. Capturing IoT data from capital assets is a challenge on its own; however, many also struggle with the workforce's preference for entrenched processes as well as the executive team's expertise for managing physical assets, which is contrasted by their discomfort with digital transformation.

The Geopolitical Landscape's Effects on Organizations

The recent U.S. government bans against Russian-based security products and Chinese smartphones are the latest results of suspicion and distrust of competing world powers. Organizations working with government entities must be aware of the geopolitical stipulations regarding their business relationships. Even with the geopolitical landscape, the buying decisions of security products are still based on trust in the supplier. It is important for CISOs and security leaders to incorporate geopolitical risk in all business-critical software, hardware and services purchasing decisions - even if that means considering local alternatives.

Takeaways:

  1. Review the geopolitical landscape and how it has effected industries and organizations
  2. What to be aware of with your buying decisions
  3. What to anticipate and prepare for in the coming years

Becoming More Decentralized

Today, increased centralization has put the power and trust into the hands of the few big players. This, of course, raises many security concerns.

As a result, technologies like Blockchain implemented to create decentralized alternatives as they move computing resources away from centralized servers. 

Takeaways:

  1. Evaluating the risks of centralization on availability, confidentiality and resiliency
  2. Exploring decentralized technologies like Blockchain and edge computing that offer visibility as well as enhanced security for your organization
  3. Understand the fact or fictionalization of developing AI strategies and the cause for concern for decentralized AI models
