The Digital Transformation of Great-West Lifeco: Cyber Security


(offbeat music) – I’m a great believer in a
defence in depth strategy, where you have multiple layers
of technology that overlap. The cyber-criminals are
getting more sophisticated, and you have to have more
sophistication in your defences. We’re very fortunate to partner with one of our partners, our primary partner in cyber-security is FireEye. We’re currently deploying their endpoint detection and remediation technology. We’re a heavy subscriber of
their threat intelligence feeds, and we use their consulting organisation Mandiant quite extensively as well. But it’s not good enough just to sort of dig a moat around your data centre and protect your
employees’ devices anymore. You actually have to extend
your cyber-security coverage out to the intelligent
edge of your network, out to the cloud and out to the internet. And we’re using companies like Zscaler and their sandboxing technology
and other organisations to extend our defences well
out from the data centre. But that’s something that
we’re investing heavily in, and we’ll continue to do
so as that threat emerges. (offbeat music)
