It’s not every day that a veteran chief information security officer (CISO) pens a book that blasts the mobile community for torpedoing enterprise security, so when I had a chance to read Barak Engel’s new book “Why CISOs Fail Security,” it seemed worthwhile. And it was. The core argument in Engel’s book is that CISOs tend to not adequately think through mobile security, which results in them putting out seemingly secure systems that don’t work anywhere near as well as what was intended when deployed.
