What are your risk managers thinking about?

By Bob Violino, CSO |  Security, insider, risk management

Security looks at operational risk, but most big companies have officers called risk managers who actually buy insurance policies for the company. What's on their minds? If you run a security operation, you should know, because your work and their work are intertwined.

CSO contributor Bob Violino recently spoke with Christopher Taylor, head of Zurich North America Commercial's Financial Institution segment, about issues related to security threats, corporate risk and insurance.
