Security, Privacy, Risk: Think ConvergenceConverged Programs Allow Faster Response, Lower Costs, Says ADP's Cloutier
Security leadership has come a long way since the days when the CIO - and later CSO or CISO - was required to just be an information security or "cyber" expert. Running a security department now requires not just technical acumen but also business acumen. But the best organizations take it even further, by creating converged programs, says Roland Cloutier, CSO of Roseland, NJ-based global business outsourcing services provider ADP.
Conceptually, this isn't a complicated approach. "Convergence is simply this: managing your security business better, for your business," he says.
In this video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent New York Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit, Cloutier discusses how this convergence facilitates:
- Faster decision-making and incident response;
- Better transparency and cost management;
- More centralized visibility into all security, privacy and risk-related processes.
Prior to working for ADP, Cloutier served as CSO of EMC, vice president of cybersecurity for Paradigm Technology Partners - acquired by Aimnet Solutions - and was the founder of Brac Solutions. For nine years, he also worked in law enforcement for the U.S. government, serving as an agent for the U.S. Air Force Combat Security Police, as a Defense Department Aerospace Protection Specialist, and as a police detective for the Department of Veterans Affairs. In November 2015, Elsevier published Cloutier's first book, "Becoming a Global Chief Security Executive Officer."
