There is no such thing as perfect IT security
There is no one right solution that you can focus on when you think about IT security in your IT systems. Your security is perfect when it is more expensive to break into a certain IT system than what it is worth for the people who try it. This way of thinking should be at the root of all your security projects.
If you apply maximum security in all areas, it will be far more expensive than what it is worth in practice. In addition, you make it much more difficult than it has to be for your employees who use the systems to provide services to your customers.

Advanced threats require advanced IT security defenses
The security challenges in your IT environment come from many different places, so it is of vital importance that you have a sense of perspective of where the threats come from and what drives them. When the requirements to your business change, new requirements to your IT security will occur. As a consequence, the IT department must be able to move fast without compromising on security and governance.
This is difficult if your IT platforms cannot be scaled or integrated with new applications, and the deliveries get stuck in monthlong projects. In situations like these, the business units buy their own individual cloud services, which they think can help them reach their targets, and there goes all your centralized security and governance.
It is no news that the requirements to the IT department and the platforms are increasing, but the explosive speed in which it takes place is new. The same applies to your IT security. Consequently, the best way to secure your company is by choosing a hybrid IT infrastructure that is sufficiently flexible to develop along with the changes in the rest of the business.
