The C-Suite’s Risk Mitigation Strategy – Kevin O’Brien – BSW #196
Email security is transitioning into being one of the top security pillars within the C-Suite’s risk mitigation strategy. Given that it’s the largest attack vector – not only based on the quantity of people who could be responsible for compromise, but also that it results in the greatest quantity of data breaches for organizations.
Kevin O'Brien, CEO and Co-Founder at GreatHorn joins Business Security Weekly for a discussion around what risk mitigation looks like in email, including:
- No longer known bad/known good. And, it’s not “magical” AI or behind a black box
- It’s about being able to identify all the factors that contribute to risk within email – individual users, departments, and the organization itself. How much of a risk tolerance do you have as you look at each and being able to balance controls accordingly.
- Risk mitigation comes down to data. And in email security, it’s 2 data points - Mean Time to Detect (MTTD) and Mean Time to Respond (MTTR)
