Interview: Jenny Le of UBIC on how to engage with senior executives on cyber security risks

UBICJenny Le is Vice President, Discovery Services, at UBIC. That role extends beyond pure discovery matters and into other aspects of managing corporate data, including cyber security risk.

In the interview below, I asked Jenny Le how one explains to senior executives about cyber security risk.

It is difficult, Jennie Le said, to engage the attention of executives who have other responsibilities and other goals to meet. For many of them, cyber security is not an express part of the job description.

It is also quite hard to understand the potential liability which flows from security breaches derived from the number and complexity of software tools, and, increasingly, from BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and the Internet of Things.

One way UBIC helps with this is to bring machine learning and behavioural analytics tools to bear on the problem. These tools are able – by reading email for example – to identify potential malfeasance or IP theft and to give better insight into potential threats.
