Beyond Black Box Results: Explainable Threat Intelligence

Security Demands 'Destructive Object Insight,' Says ReversingLabs' Mario Vuksan
Mario Vuksan, CEO, ReversingLabs

Malware defenses today too often function as black boxes, producing binary results that make it difficult for security teams to prioritize, when what's needed is transparency, to enable defenders to better understand threats and prioritize their response, says Mario Vuksan, CEO of ReversingLabs.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA 2020, Vuksan also discusses:

  • The challenge of initiating change in so many different IT and security domains, leading to the "status quo" too often lingering too long;
  • The industry's continuing difficulty with moving beyond black box results;
  • The push for explainable threat intelligence, as well as how that can be best delivered and consumed.

Vuksan founded ReversingLabs in 2009. He serves as CEO, driving all aspects of the company's strategy, operations and implementation. Vuksan previously held senior technical positions at Bit9 (now Carbon-Black), Microsoft, Groove Networks, and PictureTel (now Polycom).
