Information security professionals must have a good understanding of the business they support, says David Cass, chief information security officer (CISO) for publishing firm Elsevier.

“They must know what is important to the business and what the key business drivers are so that information security can be aligned with those,” he told computer weekly.

Many businesses have an increased need for agility and want to be able to test products quickly and adopt “fail-fast” models or expand rapidly, he said.

The cloud is well suited to these cases, said Cass, but security professionals must be able to articulate what the business risks are, and provide adequate protection.

“In the past, a security breach tended to mean the end of a CISO’s career, but now the bigger career-limiting factor is if you are unable to help the business to innovate,” he said
