Last Watchdog podcast: Unwrapping ‘resilience’ guidance discussed at RSA Conference 2021

Resilience was the theme of RSA Conference 2021 which took place virtually last week.

I’ve been covering this cybersecurity gathering since 2004 and each year cybersecurity materially advances. By the same token, the difficulties of defending modern IT systems has redoubled as organizations try to balance security and productivity.

The outside pressures are indeed as daunting as ever. Migration to cloud infrastructure is accelerating; reliance on wide-open, modular software development is deepening; and the shortage of skilled security analysts is wider than ever. Meanwhile, deep, damaging network breaches persist, affecting companies of all sizes and in all industries.

I visited with Bruce Snell and Setu Kulkarni from NTT Security to discuss this.

Snell is vice president of security strategy; his resume includes a stint as McAfee’s cybersecurity and privacy director.

And Kulkarni joined NTT Security last fall as vice president of corporate strategy, coming over with NTT’s acquisition of WhiteHat Security, where he was CEO. For a lively debrief of RSA Conference 2021, please give the accompanying podcast a listen.
