Ransomware and Rapid ResponseSophos CTO Joe Levy on Incident Response at the Speed of Crime
You’ve seen the destructive ransomware attacks of 2020, and there is no reason to expect a letup in 2021. Joe Levy, CTO of Sophos, discusses adding automation to human-led threat-hunting to create a more rapid response to ransomware strikes.
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Levy discusses:
- Current ransomware trends and tactics;
- Why current incident response capabilities are insufficient;
- How Sophos Rapid Response neutralizes active attacks.
Levy joined Sophos as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) in February 2015. In this role he leads the company’s technology strategy worldwide, driving product vision and innovation to both enhance and simplify IT security.
He brings more than 20 years of leadership and development expertise, focusing on information security.
