Bangalore: Security has always been a major concern for enterprises across the globe. Same was the case at the Black Hat Security conference held at Las Vegas. The conference had a lot of mind scorching discussions on hacks that recently made headlines, faults and latest IT security gaps. Commoners and hardcore hackers, including coders turn up for this event in large amounts to display their skills and latest trends in hacking. Even though it’s about hacking, corporate CIOs must take notice about the subject as it mainly covers all aspects of security.



So here are 5 security lessons for CIOs from Black Hat Security conference.



#1 Understand what you are protecting:



It’s pretty clear that usual strategies like “behind the firewall” and “securing the parameter” are out dated. CIOs must take care of data’s that needed to be handled. CIOs also must differentiate between data’s that needed to be published and those to be restricted. Shawn Henry, former FBI executive assistant director and current CrowdStrike president said that companies and organizations must make sure that whether they need all the organizational data or only the customer related content for statistical analysis, so that companies can understand what needs to be protected and what not.
