Black_Hat_2017_Teaser.jpgIn this video blog, my colleague Jon Oltsik and I discuss some of the insights from ESG’s cybersecurity research we expect to be topical at Black Hat USA 2017, including:

  • The challenges and solutions around security operations and analytics and the need for a security operations and analytics platform architecture (SOAPA).
  • The constant state of change in the endpoint security landscape in which organizations regularly re-evaluate processes, technologies, and vendors.
  • How cybersecurity professionals learn about how new detection and prevention technologies can be applied to the diversity of threats.
  • How multi-dimensional hybrid clouds and the use of containers and other microservices will impact cybersecurity priorities, including how micro-segmentation and software-defined perimeters (SDP) are poised to play an increasingly prominent role.

These are just a few of the top-of-mind issues we expect to be front and center at Black Hat. We look forward to seeing everyone in Vegas!
