One fundamental challenge for security organizations is how they perceive and present themselves to the rest of the enterprise, says Roy, CTO for TIBCO LogLogic.
"We encounter security organizations that really have a hard time breaking out of their shell - it's a real isolationist behavior," Roy says. "That causes issues when you're talking about business value."
Because the business needs more transparency from IT security, Roy advises organizations to adopt a more open approach. "You don't have to own everything, manage everything and recreate those silos that really create that isolationist behavior that's really counter-productive from a business perspective," he says.
In an interview about how security organizations can contribute to the bottom line, Roy discusses:
- The new view of technology deployment;
- Security impacts on the top and bottom lines;
- The stages of transition and where to begin.
Roy is a member of TIBCO's Office of the CTO and acting Chief Technology Officer for the TIBCO LogLogic business unit. He has over 16 years of experience in information technology with a focus on security and enterprise software. He joined TIBCO through the LogLogic acquisition in 2012, and before that held senior technical positions at Verizon Networks and Nokia.
