In part one of a two-part interview, Nolan Karpinski of VMware Carbon Black shares strategic insights on how to tackle the year's top cybersecurity challenges, including:

  • The impact of accelerated transformation on the retail/hospitality, government and financial services sectors;
  • Tool consolidation and roadblocks to success;
  • What makes an individual cybersecurity vendor stand out in today's market.

In part two, Karpinski discusses supply chain security and previews an upcoming series of Executive Roundtable discussions, starting with: Retail Security in a Time of Digital Transformation: Turning the Run into a Sprint.
