At the Tango/04 Monitoring Symposium 2015, Jordi Bueno, CIO at Nationale-Nederlanden, introduced the digitization project carried out by his company in order to be more profitable. On this occasion, Roberto Veronesse, CISO of the company, explains in an interview the fundamental role of the Security team in this project.
This digitization project dramatically modified Nationale-Nederlanden, extending its presence in the country, while lowering its costs by 85%. But in return the technological complexity increased and mostly the Security risks of the insurance sales and pre-sales process, which so far had been on paper. That is why Veronsse says: “The digitization project is entirely based on Security.”
“In Security you receive scoring goals every time… there are constant threats, a lot of Messis and Cristianos Ronaldos around…” -says Roberto, using soccer as a metaphor. He explains that the Security at Nationale-Nederlanden has a three level security strategy to prevent vulnerability in applications, fraud or any suspicious behavior in a process or application, which can result in a Business risk.
And here Tango/04 has a key role: “Tango/04 is like Iniesta on our team”– adds Veronesse. All the monitoring information of the security area passes through the Tango/04 solution to create reports and analyze threats in time.
Thanks to the digitization project, the Security area became more relevance within the company and Business as the owner of the project, began to realize the criticality of Security. “Business people own this football team, and as the owner they want to employ the best players, and want everything to go well, so they are more interested in Security … and knows about risks.”
