On February 20, Doug Austin of CloudNine featured the Ride the Lightning (RTL) blog post “97% of Cybersecurity Leaders Evaluating Vendor Security, Including Law Firms” in his own post. His blog post, “Only 53 Percent of Surveyed Security Officers Are Confident in Security of Data by Third Parties: Cybersecurity Trends” is featured in CloudNine’s eDiscovery Daily Blog. CloudNine is a legal intelligence technology company with deep expertise in the analysis, processing, and review of electronically stored information (ESI). Ride the Lightning is an electronic evidence and cybersecurity blog by Sensei’s Sharon Nelson.
Excerpt: A recently issued report provides an interesting look at how Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and others responsible for security are addressing the challenges in today’s cybersecurity climate.
GDPR is one significant regulatory requirement affecting security considerations, with one respondent stating that “GDPR will influence the way many companies appraise their partners, given the expansion of responsibilities for both data controllers and processors under the new privacy framework set for implementation in 2018.” Good thing we have a webcast on the topic tomorrow! :o)
The report, a 24 page PDF, chock full of other statistics and findings, is available here. As always, hat tip to Sharon Nelson of the Ride the Lightning blog for her coverage of the report.
