Shehzad Merchant from Gigamon says it's time for the defenders to take back their advantage

Bad actors are leveraging scalable frameworks and automation to attack their targets. On the other side, companies are still using human-based, manual processes to combat these attacks. The silos within the organization make this even more challenging for them, leaving them to fall behind and face the inevitable. Because of this, it seems the attackers hold the advantage against their targets. However, according to Shehzad Merchant, CTO for Gigamon, we have a chance to reverse the advantage back to the defender. The trick is to leverage the right technologies - such as machine learning + artificial intelligence + automation and orchestration. In order for this to work, however, we need to move from a prevention mindset to one of protection. Think his advice is to have your battles from the inside out using primarily human-driven means? If so, you might want to listen to Shehzad's interview during Black Hat USA 2017 with ITSPmagazine's editor-in-chief, Sean Martin. What he has to say here is short and sweet, but powerful. Enjoy!
