The five minute CIO: David Cahill

This week, the focus switches to security as AIB’s senior information security specialist talks about managing mobile devices, why real-world testing is important and user buy-in is essential.

As a percentage, how much of your annual IT budget goes on security?

That’s always a good question. To be honest, it’s nearly impossible to quantify as very often, security is taken out of several different budgets.

Likewise, we have mainframe sec rules and that would come down to the mainframe team.
