Keeping a Clear Focus: New Tech and Cyber Change

March 30, 2020


There’s a reason why people get distracted by new tech or security solutions: what if it’s the silver bullet that solves everything with minimal effort? Unfortunately, that is seldom the case. Brian chats with Becky Pinkard, CISO of Aldermore Bank, PLC, about caution with buzzwords, sharing threat intelligence, and what lies ahead for security.

“As a community, and as a human population, I think we're drawn to tech. We're drawn to the latest flash bang stuff. It's easy to get sidetracked I think in a lot of the conversations that we're having with our solution vendors and providers and even with our peers. I think if you don't have the right kind of leader that can keep focus and keep people sort of on that path, it's easy to get distracted. Then it's easy for things to fall through the cracks when that distraction pops up.”
