“What I found really interesting was that we’ve moved beyond just the basic word of people’s individual security and it’s a broader security of all of us together with this sharing of information. And if anything, what was really interesting is two points; one is culturally, we’re shifting in that perception. So older generation have been considered about them as individuals and then now we’re coming to answer how do we use a broader ecosystem to manage these threats? And secondly, we’re as good as our weakest link and that’s I guess the problem/opportunity here that so many devices — the Internet of Things are coming in. The work over the next few years will be challenging, but rewarding, to actually be able to ensure we have systems that are up to scratch, maintaining people’s data and ensuring it’s not breached and so forth.”
