A former CIO and deputy director of the United States National Security Agency (NSA) has urged CIOs to become more proactive in their approach to corporate security consciousness.
‘They’re just now getting their hands wrapped around this problem,’ Dr Prescott Winter, who spent 27 years with the NSA, told CIO.
‘But I’m afraid many of them are still reactive. The ones who have been burned are extremely proactive, they’re really leading the charge and many of them who have been burned are actually out on the circuit speaking on behalf for better cybersecurity activities and policies.’”
