Why the Security Ecosystem Needs the Theory of EvolutionSophos' Dan Schiappa on the Darwinian Theory of Cybersecurity
Cybersecurity pros need to apply the Darwinian approach of "survival of the fittest" to cybersecurity to navigate the risk landscape and raise the industry baseline for security, says Dan Schiappa of Sophos.
But to be effective, a Darwinian approach has to be implemented industrywide and can't be restricted to a single vendor, he adds.
In an video interview at RSA Conference 2018, Schiappa discusses :
- The evolution of security defenses;
- Insight into the current security landscape;
- Metrics from Sophos' "The Dirty Secrets of Network Firewalls" report.
Schiappa is senior vice president and general manager of Sophos' end-user and network security groups. Schiappa oversees the overall product strategy, product management, architecture, research and development, product quality, and release plans for both groups, including recent innovations in next-generation endpoint and firewall products.
