Vice President and Chief Security Officer at EMC

Technologies such as mobile, social networking, analytics and cloud computing are changing the security landscape, and security technologies are rapidly evolving to address that change.

It’s not just the technology that needs to change, however: security teams need to change as well.

EMC has evolved and must continue to evolve our security team to effectively combat the threats of today and tomorrow. The core skills essential to expand include business engagement and awareness; a consultative approach; the ability to sell or “market” security; and creative control design for the mobile and cloud-enabled world of tomorrow.

Changing Security Behaviors: How Marketing Savvy Can Break Patterns

Data-hacking hound dogs beware. EMC recently got a little help from Elvis in battling cyber criminals.

The “King” was at the center of an integrated marketing campaign our Global Security Operations ran this spring to encourage IT users to avoid clicking on suspicious email links that could lead to phishing attacks on our company’s data.

The several-week advertising effort featured a videotaped parody of the Elvis Presley song “Suspicious Minds,” in which ITers acted out why users shouldn’t click on “Suspicious Links,” It also featured a security awareness contest.

The campaign resulted in more than double the number of users reporting phishing attempts via suspicious emails. It also substantially increased the number of users going to our security awareness site, which we call FirstLine in recognition of the fact that the actions of IT users are the first line of defense against cyber-attacks.

New, advanced technologies continue to provide a faster, more agile environment. But those technologies – cloud computing, mobile platforms, Big Data and social media – can widen the exposure companies face to potential security threats.

To help companies remain proactive in their security measures, the latest Security for Business Innovation Council (SBIC) report titled, “Information Security Shake-Up: Disruptive Innovations to Test Security’s Mettle in 2013,” offers a forward-looking analysis of the new enterprise threats in 2013, and recommendations for how security teams can limit risk.

The report also examines four strategic steps enterprises can leverage to strengthen their security programs, including: How to boost risk and business skills, court middle management, tackle IT supply chain issues and build tech-savvy action plans.

You can learn more about the SBIC Trends Report 2013 by viewing the following video featuring EMC Vice President and Chief Security Officer Dave Martin. We have also discussed related topics in previous blogs on this site, which combined with Dave’s video and the new report, will offer a full picture of security innovations we’ve explored at EMC.
