In today’s chat, we are joined by Holly Rollo, Chief Marketing Officer, SVP at RSA Security. Holly is also one of the keynote speakers at RSA Conference APJ — co-presenting with Rohit Ghai, President at RSA Security, she will be talking about: The New Why of Cybersecurity.

Session Description: Digital investment accelerates business velocity, transforms constituent experiences and spawns new opportunities. But this formidable force for human progress also magnifies risk; it accelerates change and complexity, inviting new threats and devastating impacts. Security leaders are left reframing a new answer to an old question: Why? Managing digital risk is the new why for cybersecurity.

These are some of the themes Holly and Rohit will likely discuss during their keynote —these also some of the things we touched on during our chat today as well:

  • Risk and digital transformation

  • The increased attack surface — this can’t be solved with tools alone

  • Aligning the conversation with the right language

  • Silos across the organization inhibits productive security management and incident response

  • Lines of business owners are going rogue with shadow IT and this is exacerbating the 3rd party risk problem

  • Of course, talent remains a huge topic and diversity, inclusion and equality matter around the world

We are thrilled to have this chat with Holly to learn more about her keynote session, some of the InfoSec and privacy challenges that region and the rest of the world are facing, and her thoughts on the RSA Conference APJ in general.

Enjoy!
