In previous webinars we have discussed how the pandemic has increased the visibility of security, in some organisations at least, but that even here there is no certainty that it will have long terms benefits, especially if economic hardship ensues. What is important to understand is precisely how and in what ways security personnel has kept business working. A central theme to this is the extent to which security has shown itself and can show itself to be key to core business activity. In many ways this is something of a Holy Grail, and in theory the pandemic has provided a showcase. This webinar will explore these issues in more depth and specifically:
- Why are security professionals in some cases viewed as marginal to core business activity?
- Why are security professionals in some cases viewed as central and important to core business activity?
- What needs to change going forward to render security professionals more credible from the viewpoint of business?
