The Lesson Here Is to Learn a Lesson

Chris Wysopal, CISO and CTO of Veracode: 'There is a saying that I have heard many CISOs make: 'Don't let a data breach go to waste.' What they mean by this is to take a breach as an opportunity to find gaps in your security program and get funding to fill those gaps given the urgency of the moment. I was speaking with my head of business continuity a few days ago while we were planning for the potential of having the entire company work remotely about running a test to find any gaps in our business continuity planning. I had the thought that this is the perfect time to improve our planning and that we shouldn't let this potential pandemic go to waste. Let's use the urgency to get all business functions to improve their planning to continue business during a pandemic.'
