BP locking down personal devices in the face of cyber warfare

Derek du Preez | Nov. 14, 2013
Oil giant BP is currently having a "big internal debate" about how it can lock down personal computers without losing out on flexibility for employees, as a direct result of the increasing threat of cyber attacks.

"Today risk is becoming a greater part of your weekly agenda, I would say today I probably spend 20 percent of my time dealing in some form of risk - either in government discussions, board discussions, senior executive discussions, or team discussions, just working through what crisis management would look like, what would disaster recovery look like, and how the world of that unknown would play out."

Deasy recently announced his departure from BP and is set to join JP Morgan as CIO. He is to be replaced by Mike Gibbs, who is currently CIO and VP of BP's refining and marketing business.
