“They can democratize cybersecurity with automation through robotics, integrate features through DevSecOps, support development teams in code review, and generally make cybersecurity accessible to everyone,” he says.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group as part of RSA Conference 2021 coverage, Alhamad, speaker of the conference, offers information on:
- Why should CISOs look at the big picture through collaboration?
- The concept of flexion rather than breaking down when it comes to establishing business resilience;
- Make domains more difficult and costly to target attackers.
