Companies must dismantle silos
Very wise words, but I don't think I will be holding my breath until that happens. In too many organizations, I've seen group leaders more interested in expanding their empire and controlling everything within it. Yes, in the IT Security world, that may lead to fragmented and insecure application development, confusing and overly complicated technology deployment, etc., but those leaders are more interested in their power growth than anything else, plus they believe their strategy to be close to flawless. What really should happen is for the topmost official within the organization to hand down an edict that brings the different groups to work together for the good of the enterprise. The question then becomes "to whom is that topmost official listening?" There is a danger of taking the advice of someone within the organization, someone who had a personal agenda foremost, and therefore the advice could be tainted in their favor. If the advice comes from outside the organization, there could be the feeling that it comes from an uninformed source who does not fully appreciate the inner workings or goals of the organization. It would behoove those officials to educate themselves accordingly, but that takes time and distracts them from other activities. Now if only their tenure and compensation were to be heavily dependent on the IT security success of the organization ... then again, that is a very big if!
