BitSight Technologies conducted research on breached organizations and how they were impacted by botnets. The results are eye-opening, says CTO Stephen Boyer, offering insights from this study.

"We looked at thousands of organizations and saw that organizations that have machines infected by botnets were over two times more likely to have a publicly disclosed breach," says Boyer, a co-founder of BitSight Technologies

In an interview recorded on the expo floor at RSA Conference 2015, Boyer discusses:

  • Findings from this new survey;
  • Common security gaps at breached organizations;
  • How BitSight helps organizations measure and improve cybersecurity.

Boyer is the CTO, co-founder, and board member of BitSight Technologies. Previously, he has worked at Saperix, Lincoln Lab, and Caldera.
