Situational Awareness for Cybersecurity: Beyond the Network

October 2020 Podcast
Timothy Morrow, Angela Horneman

Angela Horneman and Timothy Morrow discuss the importance of looking beyond the network to gain situational awareness for cybersecurity.

“We are in a world where there are so many threats, there are so many attacks on a day-to-day basis, especially for large organizations but even for small organizations. Without that greater context, you can’t effectively respond to the threats that are most detrimental to your organization or could have the most impacts.”
