Enterprise Security organizations often find themselves caught between the ever-changing needs of the agile business, and the ever-present, ever-evolving threats to that business. At the same time – all too often we security professionals get caught up in “shiny object syndrome” which leads us to spend poorly, allocate resources unwisely, and generally de-couple from the organization we’re chartered to defend. Knowing how to defend begins with knowing what you’ll be defending, why it is worth defending, and who you’ll be defending from… and therein lies the trick. This blog takes the issue of enterprise security head-on, challenging outdated thinking and bringing a pragmatic, business-aligned, beyond the tools perspective … so follow the Wh1t3 Rabbit and remember that tools alone don’t solve problems, strategic thinkers are the key.

This week marked the first (unofficial) start to the new role I'm taking - which I can't tell you all about quite yet. Consequently I had some fantastic meetings with a couple great organizations that I believe exemplify some of the challenges enterprises are facing - large or small - today. In this post I'm discussing a group I met with who are struggling to treat water and not drown ...and provide some practical advice maybe you can use?
