Economics of Insecurity

Thumb original mktg 18 0108 economics insecurity wp d

The information security field is economically inefficient. This is both good and bad. Bad, because it means billions of dollars are squandered on solutions which offer their buyers sub-optimal returns. Good, because the opportunities exist to operate more efficiently and thereby improve the quality of life for everyone.
This paper will examine how we know economic inefficiencies exist and why the industry seems unwilling to address them. By understanding these issues, companies will be better able to select effective IT security solutions that align with their business mission. Readers will also gain insight into how misplaced trust can lead to contradictory market reactions.

AI-Driven Threat and Incident Prevention, Detection, and Response

Traditional cybersecurity approaches suffer from two glaring weaknesses. First, they rely on the digital signatures of known malware in order to identify threats. This approach leaves systems vulnerable to new and non-catalogued malware. Second, they are reactive in nature, ascribing to the “it’s not a matter of if, but when” mentality and often responding to the damage caused by zero-day threats only after they execute. Guarding against known threats is important but in the modern threat, landscape organizations must also address the over 350, ...
