Organizations are increasingly turning to devices and the cloud to foster better collaboration and access to essential data. But as they do so, "the number one blocker for enabling digital transformation is security," warns Florian Bienvenu of BlackBerry.

In a video interview at the recent Infosecurity Europe conference in London, Bienvenu discusses:

  • Digital transformation: Why it requires a secure foundation and the real business innovation that security can unlock;
  • Things: IoT and the changing nature of threats - how cybersecurity is no longer just about data but about protecting physical assets too;
  • Culture: The importance of driving security at a cultural level within the business in order to stay compliant and capitalize on digital transformation.

Bienvenu is the senior vice president of EMEA for BlackBerry. Previously, he served as the vice president of EMEA for Good Technology, which BlackBerry acquired in 2015, as well as the vice president for Salesforce.com in France, among other roles.
