RSA Conference 2017: Day Three

Susan Helmick

On the last full day of RSA, Forcepoint CEO Matt Moynahan delivered a keynote on the importance of breaking from a focus on endpoints and walls to the critical human point of interaction between people, content and data.

Matt emphasized that though the cybersecurity industry has invested billions in technology, little progress has been made in recognizing and preventing cyber breaches.  Critical business data is now everywhere and the notion of boundaries and walls are increasingly irrelevant, especially with the co-mingling of personal and business apps on single devices becoming ever more common.

Matt underlined that as an industry of solution providers and customers, we need to acknowledge the human point of vulnerability and recognize that technological walls will never be adequate. Forcepoint is leading this cross functional conversation beyond the walls of IT, to exploring the right blend of technologies, policies and cultural changes required to make sustainable progress. Technology is a merely a means to end. Understanding people’s motivations and intent before they even touch technology is the next big step our industry needs to take.
