Cybersecurity is a significant problem and it continues to grow. Addressing symptoms will not achieve the desired results. A holistic approach must be applied which involves improving the entire technology ecosystem. Smarter security innovation, open collaboration, trustworthy practices, technology designed to be hardened against compromise, and comprehensive protections wherever data flows is required.
The technology industry must change in order to meet ever growing cybersecurity demands. It will not be easy, but technologists, security leaders, and end-users must work together to make the future of computing safer.
I recently spoke at the CTO Forum Rethink Technology event on Feb 13 2015. Presenting to an audience of thought-leading CTO’s and executives. I was privileged to speak on a panel including Marcus Sachs (VP National Security Policy, Verizon), Eran Feigenbaum (Director of Security for Google for Work, Google), Rob Fry (Senior Information Security Architect, Netflix), and Rick Howard (CSO, Palo Alto Networks). We all discussed the challenges facing the cybersecurity sector and what steps are required to help companies strengthen their security.
I focused on the cybersecurity reality we are in, how we all have contributed to the problem, and consequently how we must all work together to transform the high technology industry to become sustainably secure.
