In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Holden discusses:

  • What CISOs wish they knew before experiencing a breach;
  • What needs to happen once an incident is suspected;
  • How to deal with cyber insurance provider requirements.

Holden is responsible for maintaining the day-to-day security of the organization's information systems and data while adhering to regulatory requirements. He started his career as a forensics analyst for Hewlett-Packard's global cybersecurity team, where he ran digital evidence collections for internal investigations related to e-discovery matters, breach incident response, HR and policy investigations. He then took on consulting roles, working on both incident response engagements and proactive services and helping build and assess security programs for globally recognized organizations.
