Could the majority of breaches be preventable for little money?

This week on the teissPodcast, Greg Van Der Gaast, Head of Information, University of Salford, highlights why CISOs often fail to deliver for their organisations, as well as the basic common issues that go unnoticed by security departments which – more often than not – are the cause of major breaches. 

Greg explains how organisations can definitely improve their security without spending huge sums of money, as well as why he refuses to use metrics with the board and why he feels CISOs need to embrace more “altruism” in their role as security leaders.
