Tech Club: ‘People Need To Focus On Making Revenue, Not Securing The Business’

A week ago, TechWeekEurope readers gathered at Bar Soho in London to talk about firewalls, passwords and other things related to information security, at a quarterly Tech Club meeting.

In the video below David Shearmon, CEO of the independent security vendor Cryptic and a member of the Tech Club, discusses IT education and security budgets. He believes that the security landscape is changing too quickly, and businesses should trust the experts to protect them from online threats.

Other opinions on the topic:

Sat Birdi, CEO at vzInternet: ‘The Threat Landscape Is Too Big – You Have To Pick Your Battles’.

Nigel Painter, associate director at MEMEology: ‘We’re Not Talking About Something As Straightforward As Money’.
