Complexity can pose a threat, he says. Simply put, less complex technical environments are simpler to manage and keep free of vulnerabilities or misconfigurations that attackers might exploit.

  • How today's landscape amplifies the technical challenges facing CISOs;
  • Why more complex infrastructure creates more risk;
  • The technology management reality challenges facing CISOs.
