If you ask Alex, he won’t admit being old-fashioned. He has been working in the IT industry for a while now and accepts that security is important for the business’s health. But reluctant to take security as the business enabler.
In today’s environment, moving to digitization is a critical step required to drive innovation and business growth. When the application development takes the driver seat, security stalls the progress by saying NO to many things on the highway. — Is what he says.

And, he added a powerful quote:
“Because we’ve brakes in our cars, we can drive fast” – Robert Garigue
Businesses will less likely advance if they don’t have security (brakes) to do safely. The car’s speed obtains improvement with brakes – the improvements to business are the improvement to the security.
