Cryptosoft and Intellect Security’s CEO Jon Penney Video Interview in partnership with Groupe INSEEC London presents:  Video Interview with Jon Penney from Intellect Security and Cryptosoft Ltd by Daniel Steeves, in the Beyond Solutions Boardroom.

There are many threats today in the cyber criminals toolkit, most notably the dreaded  Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. Opportunities arising from the Cloud are presenting serious challenges for organisations wishing to incorporate broader adoption of encryption to safeguard critical data into their overall IT strategies, not least of which is the security of data. Cryptosoft is the world’s first encryption service software platform which supports any data type, from any application delivered to any destination with security and capacity designed to scale.

2013 has seen many organisations become more security focused, thus indicating there will be strong demand  from organisations that need encryption but are not prepared to sacrifice current security controls or processes. In this interview Expert Jon Penney and Daniel Steeves discuss critical issues in IT security, the ramifications of cloud computing and highlight the current landscape of IT attacks and their origins.

Panel Questions:

1. Tell us about the journey so far in IT security.

2. How did you get involved in this aspect of Information Technology?

3. Security has long been seen as necessary but considered ‘too expensive’: are attitudes changing?

4. Does the public see the reality or are breaches and attacks being hidden to protect reputations and brands?

5. How should Cloud Computing providers be addressing these issues?

6. What are your views on the current situation, ranging from criminal to political to terror-based IT security attacks?

7. Who and how should we be delivering education and communication around such issues?

8. With BYoD how can a business be sure that everything is protected?

9. With BYoServer becoming a new reality, how can a business even be aware of everything that needs protecting?
