Until recently, my infosec career was at an enterprise level, typically as a security manager or CISO of multinationals – the attraction of my many thousands of endpoints always guaranteeing me the close attention of vendors and their associated volume discounts.

That all changed three years ago, fuelled by my frustrations trying to transparently manage the risks presented by my supply chains, or fourth parties even, I made a deliberate (reckless?) move to the SME channel to enjoy a new exciting challenge:
  • be on the front line

  • to make a difference

  • be where the wild things are

The phrase “Be careful what you wish for” springs to mind!

The more things change, the more they stay the same…

Typically my experience has unearthed depressingly familiar findings:

Cyber is either seen as an IT problem, and lumped in with support or, freed from the rigours of PLC compliance reporting, there’s a lack of appetite for greater management clarity, with companies preferring instead to respond to and deal with breaches as they happen.

In almost all cases where I’ve provided assurance services the most compelling element has been the disparity between the over optimism of business leaders with regard to their security posture, versus the reality of the metrics I’ve just presented to them!

Disbelief is soon followed by anger at their existing IT suppliers for misleading them. But here’s the rub. It’s usually NOT the service supplier’s fault. They weren’t (and probably aren’t) part of any integrated asset management system. There will be unmanaged assets that have a profound impact on security posture – it’s the silent failures that will kill you. You may have 100% compliance of what you know about – and it’s not just about patching and anti-virus!

Add into the mix the obstacles of deploying integrated security controls designed for enterprise into the SME channel (cost, complexity, training) and it’s no wonder there’s a disparity between the perception and reality of security exposure.
