Safety Through Segmentation

April 16, 2019


Brian Contos sits down with cybersecurity veteran William (Bill) Crowell, former Deputy Director of the NSA and current partner at Alsop Louie Partners, to get a picture of the major threat landscape changes over the past 15 years. While phishing attacks, advanced persistent threats (APTs), and breach monetization become more sophisticated each day, CIOs and board members must turn their focus to implementing proper network segmentation.

“The network is so connected and so interconnected that, quite frankly, there are just too many communications that go under the security network defenses. What we should be evolving into is the capability to protect the data, so we should protect it through robust encryption, role-based authentication, segmentation of the network so that not everyone in the company has access to everything -- the same way we do in physical security.”
