IT security shouldn’t be ‘because I told you so’ – consult employees on policy


"IT security shouldn't be dictated from on high, as trusting and involving employees helps to nurture a greater security culture, an industry panel representing leading banking, media, engineering and security solution firms have agreed.

Speaking at Computing's 2016 Enterprise Security and Risk Management Summit, Anton Karpov, CISO at Yandex, Russia's largest search engine, suggested that security 'shouldn't be because I told you so'.

Speaking as the CISO of a firm composed of many technically proficient employees, Karpov said that involving skilled and savvy people in security culture is an easy win, but requires trust.

‘It's important to explain why you have certain rules or systems deployed, but you need to realise that technical people are open to coming to you and telling if something is wrong. I'd say it's important to be able to trust your engineers and employees,’ he said.”
