Liberty Mutual Insurance Talks Security in Recent Podcast Series

November 12, 2012

Earlier this week, during the latest edition of the HP Discover Performance Podcast Series, the discussion examined how Liberty Mutual Insurance is effectively building security more deeply into its overall business practices.

To attain the higher goals of enterprise resiliency, and deliver greater responsiveness to all varieties of risk, the topic focused on how the requirements of compliance and regulatory governance aligned with security best practices.

Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions, was joined by Co-host Raf Los, chief security evangelist at HP Software, and special guest John McKenna, VP and chief information security officer (CISO) for Liberty Mutual Insurance, based in Boston, to explore these and other security related enterprise IT issues.

Among other questions, Gardner asked McKenna about security and its importance to the business, investing procedures and its future forecasts.

McKenna stated that in terms of the threats and in terms of the kinds of technologies that are used these days to enable business, it’s pretty clear that the world has changed.

“Certainly, there's an obligation there, a responsibility to protect our customers’ information as well as making sure that our business operations can continue to support those customers,” he added.

As mentioned by McKenna, people need to make sure that they are as secure as they need to be. Moreover, to support its customers, McKenna believes that its employees need to be protected to enable them to work and get the job done.

McKenna spoke about technology landscape and stated that for the bad guys to take advantage of everything from mobility platforms and social networking to cloud computing, they are introducing different attack vectors and different opportunities.

He concluded his point by stating that in the Fortune 100 list, it is a global company. Having $35 billion in revenue, it has about 45,000 employees worldwide. It offers products across the personal and commercial lines products, or P&C, and life insurance products.
