Why Simpler is Better for CISOsTrend Micro's Steve Neville on Managing Today's Complex Technical Landscape
Simpler is better. While that might be a frequent truism in life, it's especially applicable to the technology landscape facing organizations, as CISOs attempt to manage cloud services, 5G and other emerging technologies, says Steve Neville, director of corporate marketing at Trend Micro.
Complexity can pose a threat, he says. Simply put, less complex technical environments are simpler to manage and keep free of vulnerabilities or misconfigurations that attackers might exploit.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Neville discusses:
- How today's landscape amplifies the technical challenges facing CISOs;
- Why more complex infrastructure creates more risk;
- The technology management reality challenges facing CISOs.
