we re going on a journey
We’re going on a journey…

…from the Knights Templar to Jeremy Clarkson, onto James May and beyond!

what is it to be secure
What is it to be secure?

“the state of being free from danger or threat”

why the knights templar
Why the Knights Templar?…
  • The original ‘trust authority’
  • Conveyed money around the middle east during the crusades
  • Founders of modern banking systems…
  • …which are based on trust
trust in modern banking
Trust in modern banking…
  • Money isn’t real
  • You trust the bank to pay you – based on a promise!
is it misplaced
…is it misplaced?
  • The bank teller model worked for centuries
  • Until the 1990’s
  • When trust moved…
are we keeping up
Are we keeping up?
  • Web 2.0 creates new challenges…
  • …for which we create new controls
  • Which surely enhance security?
  • Enter our second guest…
remember jeremy clarkson
Remember Jeremy Clarkson?…
  • Published bank details after HMRC breach in 2008
  • Direct debit setup to make charitable contribution

“The bank cannot find out who did this because of the Data Protection Act and they cannot stop it from happening again”

Jeremy Clarkson

what does this prove
What does this prove?
  • That the boundaries have moved
  • Security no longer exists as we understand it
  • That technology can’t be controlled using traditional thinking
  • That we need to evolve our thinking

Time for our third guest…

enter james may
Enter James May!
  • Understanding your assets allows tangible benefit
  • Defined frameworks are required
  • Requires constant re-evaluation to achieve goals
so what about the future
So what about the future?
  • You’re here, now!
  • The line between consumerisation and business is dissolving rapidly
  • Technology and adoption evolves faster than ever before
  • Risks are not to be feared, but managed
  • Compliance will not help you!
so where do we start
So where do we start?
  • Ask questions about your business
  • Determine the information assets being used
  • Don’t assume control context
  • Determine the information risks you need managing
  • Determine responsibility for operating controls
  • Ensure metrics measure desired control performance
