Devsecops can be used to build security into everything you are doing, all your products and services, making it a growth factor without it being a huge cost overhead says Wiley Publishing’s Sean Mack.

He adds that trust in the brand is all about cybersecurity, keeping customer data secure – because when customers feel their data is secure they are more likely to trust the company. This requires ttransparency and proactivity in communication, from policies to incident response in the event of a breach.

The modern CISO needs to be thinking more like a business leader than a risk controller, to make that strategic shift from risk mitigation to risk alignment with business needs and agility, moving fast and secure. A built in security foundation is part of that competitive advantage, enabling the company to move fast and get out front in AI and devsecops, helping to drive innovation.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group for Google, Mack discussed:

  • The shift in the CISP role from risk mitigation to business risk alignment;
  • Making our robust security more visible to the customer to increase trust;
  • Communicating updated privacy policies to the customer in ways they can understand to drive customer satisfaction.
