Gartner's Avivah Litan on Impact of Marriott BreachAnalyst Contends Nation-States Are Waging Cyberwar and Our Defenses Are Lacking
In the aftermath of the Marriott breach, it's fair to characterize Gartner's Avivah Litan as mad as hell and not wanting the U.S. to take it anymore. Going into 2019, Litan has policy and technology recommendations for national cyber defense.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Breach Prevention Summit: Washington, Litan discusses:
- Her frustration about ongoing attacks by nation-states;
- Recommendations for a unified national defense strategy;
- Optimism about blockchain and the promise of self-sovereign identity.
Litan is a vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner Research. Her areas of expertise include endpoint security, security analytics for cybersecurity and fraud, user and entity behavioral analytics, insider threats, fraud detection and prevention, and identity proofing.
