CISA's (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s) strategic plan was just recently released and focuses on four key areas: cyber defense, risk reduction and resilience, operational collaboration, and agency unification. What can we learn from this work? Where does it fall short? How is this elevating or helping the practice of cybersecurity in the US, and around the world? Join our host, Ken Kadet, as he talks about this and more with Paul Calatayud, Co-Founder & Chief Strategy Officer at Onada, and former CSO at Palo Alto Networks and the CTO at Firemon.

Protect vs Detect

Tuesday Jun 07, 2022

Tuesday Jun 07, 2022

Every time you see a big cybersecurity crisis or incident -- like Colonial Pipeline, Solar Winds, log4j -- leaders and Boards rush out to invest more in monitoring and detection technologies … but are we neglecting the “roads and bridges” of data protection and access management? Why do investments in cryptography infrastructure and access and policy management that protect your organization and data remain a harder sell? Entrust CIO Anudeep Parhar and Dr. Pali Surdhar, Director of Product Security share their unique perspectives – and why enterprises must make the shift from rewarding the cybersecurity hero that saves the day to celebrating “no news is good news”.
