In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA 2020, Higbee also discusses:

  • The government challenge;
  • Why technology is failing as an anti-phishing solution;
  • Why Cofense sought a “moderate” FedRAMP authorization to help government agencies.

Higbee is the co-founder and CTO of Cofense, a provider of intelligent phishing defense solutions. Previously, he co-founded the Intrepidus Group, which incubated PhishMe and led to the incorporation of Cofense. He also held various roles at McAfee as well as at large internet service providers.
