Randy Watkins, CTO, Critical Start

The average SOC and its personnel are "lost in the noise" caused by an overflow of alerts, says Randy Watkins, CTO of Critical Start, and the adversaries know this and take full advantage. Watkins advises on the role MDR can play in resolving all alerts and detecting and stopping attacks.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Watkins discusses:

  • The role of MDR;
  • The risk/resolve challenge;
  • How to stop adversaries from taking advantage of the "noise."

Watkins is the chief technology officer for CRITICALSTART® and an emerging thought leader in the security industry. He is responsible for designing and executing the company's strategic technology initiatives, which includes defining the strategy and direction of Critical Start's Managed Detection and Response services delivered by the Zero Trust Analytics Platform.
