IT security needs to move to ‘people-centric' practices

From SC Magazine

"Gartner analyst Dionsio Zumerle spoke at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit about the state of mobile security, focusing on the idea that IT security needs to move to 'people-centric' security practices when it comes to managing mobile devices in the enterprise.

Zumerle said: ‘'All too often it's a case of ‘them against us', rather we need to become enablers within the enterprise. We need to take the path of least resistance and encourage the use of the best tools available.’

He continued: ‘Users want to be able to work with agility and simplicity and will find a way to do that if you don't give it to them. This is the reason why IT security departments are often seen as a hindrance, as they often ask for eavesdropping abilities and make the process of adopting new software and devices much too complex.’

According to Zumerle, there has been a large rise in shadow IT development, where people are now making the right tools for themselves to do the job. He argued that this too is a positive thing, as long as it is properly managed by IT with Git accounts and the developers are using company-approved frameworks for their development.”
