IT Best Practices: From the book “Managing Risk and Information Security: Protect to Enable” by Malcolm Harkins

As the technology environment continues to evolve, many people believe we’re moving toward a future in which organizations outsource much of the delivery of IT services, which will shift the organization away from IT implementation to procurement and management of suppliers and services, nonetheless requiring a CISO – Chief Information Security Officer – to set direction and establishing an overall IT architecture. To communicate this shift, the CISO must have the ability to address these subjects at different levels so that all members of the organization have a clear understanding of the group’s direction.

Malcolm Harkins is vice president of the Information Technology Group, and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and general manager of Information Risk and Security. The group is responsible for managing the risk, controls, privacy, security, and other related compliance activities for all of Intel’s information assets.
