Cybersecurity: Fighting the wrong battle with the wrong weapons
The technology industry is going about cybercrime the wrong way, according to Nuix senior VP Chris Pogue.
In a new whitepaper, Pogue says the cyber security industry has been “fighting the wrong battle with the wrong weapons” for the last 20 years. He says in order for technology to fight cybercrime and insider threats effectively, it must first solve human vulnerabilities.
“In the more than 2500 data breaches I have investigated, I can count exactly zero that were caused by non-human-initiated system failure,” Pogue says. “Like it or not, people are the problem.”
