Embedding a ‘Culture of Security’ Is the Best Defense

Increased connectivity and data use have greatly heightened the risk of a major security breach. But on top of the requisite technological protections, one of the best security defenses organizations can have is a “culture of security,” says Robert Coles, chief information security officer at GlaxoSmithKline. He and Sigal Barsade, a Wharton management professor, and Sheetal Mehta, global head of enterprise security solutions at Wipro Technologies, delve into this idea in this CIO Series article, produced by Knowledge@Wharton and sponsored by Wipro.
