The following may contain excerpts from an article entitled “Facilitate, Don’t Dictate” published in The Business Times on 9 August, 2017.
“The real threat to security isn’t the cloud. It’s the adoption of hidden or unapproved technology outside of the control of the IT department that will most likely lead to a data leak,” says Mark Crosbie, global head of trust and security at Dropbox.
“Rather than imposing a blanket ban on collaboration tools, many of the [Chief Information Officers] I speak with understand the need to approach their role as a facilitator. They’ve realised that adoption and simplicity are the keys to ensuring data remains secure.”
