Listen: Former NSA analyst Tony Sager tackled ‘fog of more’

Never in history have companies had access to so many technologies and tools to defend themselves. This has created what the Center for Internet Security calls the “fog of more,” where a deluge of choices make decisions difficult to manage.

So how should one choose? And how do security leaders ensure tools are effectively integrated into environments? Tune in to episode 11 of the CISO stories podcast, where Tony Sager of CIS speaks with Todd Fitzgerald, vice president of cybersecurity strategy at the Cybersecurity Collaborative. They talk about the challenging threat landscape today and how security pros can use the CIS controls to more effectively manage their environments.

Sager spent 34 years at the National Security Agency (NSA) as a mathematician, software vulnerability analyst, and executive manager. Before retiring in 2012 Sager oversaw all NSA red and blue teams, as well as all security product evaluation teams. He helped guide the NSA’s top talent development programs, and founded the Vulnerability Analysis and Operations Group, NSA’s premier technical organization in defense. Today, Sager serves as senior vice president and chief evangelist for CIS, where he led the development of the CIS Controls, a community consensus project that identifies and supports best practices in cybersecurity.
