Building a Stronger Security InfrastructureInsights on Protecting Customer Data During the Pandemic
As organizations collect more consumer data during the COVID-19 pandemic, how can they protect it? Peter Yapp, former deputy director at the UK's National Cyber Security Center, provides insights.
One key step, he stresses, is using network segmentation as part of a stronger security infrastructure. "Once an attacker has gotten into a network, the flatter the network, the easier it is to traverse around the world," he says.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Yapp discusses:
- The additional security challenges emerging during the COVID-19 crisis;
- How businesses can best protect their customers' data and their systems;
- Why cutting corners is incompatible with building a strong security infrastructure.
Yapp is a partner at UK-based law firm Schillings, where he leads a cyber defense group. Formerly deputy director at the UK's National Cyber Security Center, he specializes in providing cybersecurity incident advice to a broad range of organizations.
