Product security is the other half of the security picture. While enterprise IT security primarily focuses on an internal audience, product security teams must respond quickly to issues identified by customers and researchers. Canon Europe’s Quentyn Taylor recently discussed the value of product security programs.

Product security is challenging because fixes need to created, thoroughly tested and released rapidly. And because they could affect customers, companies need to meet intense requirements based on what is needed to secure products - not just what customers ask for, said Taylor, director of information security for Canon Europe, Middle East and Africa.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at Infosecurity Europe 2023, Taylor discussed:

  • Prioritization of security vulnerabilities and the benefits of becoming a CVE numbering authority;
  • Effective management of resources beyond information security to meet customers' needs;
  • Why CISOs need to adopt a broader commercial perspective.

Taylor delivers high quality, cost-effective security that meets business objectives. He is able to present to both the board and technical teams and achieves positive results for end customers and the company.
