BT's Bruce Schneier and Ray Stanton talk security with ComputerWeekly.com's security blogger David Lacey at Infosecurity 2008.
Ray Stanton is the Global Head of BT's Business Continuity, Security and Governance Practice. He talks to David Lacey about security in telephony, solutions for SMEs, security as part of converged services and his recommendation of a "back to basics" approach: people, process and technology. He also poses the question: what have you changed in your company's business continutiy planning since last year's floods in the UK? And if it's nothing, why?
Bruce Schneier, Chief Technical Officer of BT Counterpane and author of Beyond Fear: Thinking Sensibly About Security in an Uncertain World, discusses the human and emotional factors involved with information security, what the US government should do in the fight against e-crime, and how his belief in humanity's "resilient capability to muddle through" keeps him optimistic overall, however pessimistic the outlook might seemwhen judged against the details of rising security threats.
