Stuart McClure, Founder and CEO, Cylance
Are we becoming too complacent in terms of network security? According to Cylance, security today is still in its infancy, and is quite some way behind the thinking of financial institutions as to how they architect security into the core fabric of their new solutions. Security needs to be built in from the very beginning, rather than bolted on at a later date. Despite the emergence of new technologies such as SDN and NFV, malicious attackers will still target the weakest parts of the network, which are the end points – virtual or otherwise. This could be a mobile device, laptop, server, or a virtual device, and protecting all these points will always be a trade off between cost and risk. Operators need a security plan in place that covers services and products, and extend this to their ecosystem partners, and this requires standards.
