Why Threat-Centric Security Is Bound to FailRSA CTO Zulfikar Ramzan on Taking a Business-Driven Approach
Taking a threat-centric approach - trying to defend against every threat out there - is a recipe for failure in the current threat landscape, says RSA CTO Zulfikar Ramzan, who advocates a business-driven approach instead.
Organizations need to identify which risks are the most relevant to their business context and address them first, rather than trying to defend against everything, he asserts.
In this video interview at the RSA Conference 2018, Ramzan discusses:
- The need for a mission-driven approach to security;
- The platform versus point solution stack debate;
- How to best invest security dollars in 2018.
As CTO at RSA, Ramzan is responsible for leading the development of the company's technology strategy and bringing innovations to market. Previously, he was CTO at Elastica and chief scientist of Sourcefire, implementing and deploying machine learning systems. He has co-authored more than 50 technical articles and two books and holds more than 50 patents.
