Today we all constantly read about data breaches that could have been prevented if the impacted organization had just done what they were supposed to do. The unfortunate reality is that cyberattacks are now a matter of ‘when’ and not ‘if’ for the average enterprise. Yet the landscape is changing and protecting your environment is actually getting more challenging not less.
Cyber adversaries are more organized and talented than ever, so an effective cyber defense now requires more than just following the right processes. Today’s enterprises need defenders who perform their jobs with an adversarial mindset. While this need is becoming more acute every day, we are also presently in the midst of an enormous cybersecurity skills shortage. These two forces are diametrically opposed and there is only one way toward resolution – practical security training.
This being the case, I couldn’t be happier to join Offensive Security as the company’s next CEO.
