Re: Mandatory Security Teams
And that is why unregulated capitalism cannot be accepted at a governmental level.
Without governmental meddling, there is no industry that would, on its own, decide to implement filters to reduce the pollutants being spewed in the air.
Without laws, no company would say "let's not dump these toxic chemicals into the river and, instead, spend millions every year on water treatment".
None of that would happen because capitalism is "shareholder interest" and that interest is money, not the environment.
The Internet has taken up such a space in our lives that it has reached the level of a public utility. Companies, however, are still doing whatever they want, deciding on what level of IT they are willing to pay for to make things work. The only reason there are any security protocols in place is not for the safety of customer data, it's for the safety of the company - because down time costs money and makes for lost sales.
We do need laws to bring home to the Board that their customer data is a treasure that needs proper protection, not just good-enough-protection.
We're getting there, but China is clearly leading the way.
