EDRM Partner Canopy Featured in Toolbox | Security

Two guys in ties, one with a halo one with devil horns, fists up, ready to fight.

Toolbox | Security interviewed seven cyber executives to reflect back on 2020 and project into 2021. Among the topics raised included addressing attack surface expansion, post breach remediation, prioritizing budget items, validating effectiveness of security programs, layered security, the need for the basics for small and medium businesses and the impact of remote work on SIEM stacks.

Ralph Nickl, CEO of Canopy, told Toolbox | Security that, “If there’s one thing 2020 has taught us, it’s when not if an organization will fall victim to a cyber attack. The shift to remote work environments has significantly expanded the attack surface and cybercriminals are taking full advantage. Because of this, a shift in mentality is required in how organizations mitigate risk and preserve brand reputation. 

Not getting hit in the first place will always be best practice but cleaning up the mess is now just as important as preventing it. This reality has been compounded by an enhanced focus on consumer privacy rights and the continued proliferation of global data privacy laws. Data breach fatigue is real, but no one is tired of corporate responsibility. Moving forward, CISOs and SOC teams must place greater priority on strategies and tools that allow them to meet post-breach requirements under both the law and consumer expectations in order to succeed in the new normal.”
