What this means, he says, is understanding the specific threats, gaining true visibility into your network and tapping into analytics to make responsible defensive decisions.

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent San Francisco Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit, Kruegel discusses:

  • What's wrong with traditional breach defense;
  • His vision of true breach defense;
  • How network visibility can be the real cybersecurity differentiator.

Kruegel's research focuses on computer and communications security, with an emphasis on malware analysis and detection, web security and intrusion detection. In addition to his role as CEO at Lastline, he also is a professor of computer science at UC Santa Barbara.
