Who Watches the Watchers?: A Discussion on Who Can Be Trusted Today

By Marcos Colon

Security departments have evolved tremendously over the years, but so have cyber threats. As organizations become more aware that nearly no one can be trusted, whose job is it to watch the watchers? At this year’s RSA Conference in San Francisco, InfoSec Insider caught up with Forcepoint's Dr. Richard Ford who dives into the topic.
