“Many of the world’s best cybercriminals are being protected by nation-states,” Kellerman says.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at the recent RSA Conference 2019 in Singapore, Kellermann also discusses:

  • The need to have a new design for incident response;
  • How security practitioners need to come up to speed;
  • Sectors that are bearing the brunt of cyberattacks.

Kellermann, chief cybersecurity officer at Carbon Black, is the former CEO at Strategic Cyber Ventures. He's a cyber intelligence expert, author, professor and leader in the field of cybersecurity. He held a seat on the Commission on Cyber Security for the 44th President of the United States and served as an adviser to the International Cyber Security Protection Alliance.
