Boosting Security Resilience and Defending the IT EcosystemJeetu Patel of Cisco Discusses the Critical Ability to 'Bounce Back' From Incidents
With rising threats facing critical infrastructure sectors, such as healthcare and financial services, "society as a whole, and the safety of society, is completely dependent on cyber risk" - and being security resilient, says Jeetu Patel, executive vice president and general manager, security and collaboration business units, Cisco.
"Security resilience is the ability for a company to bounce back if it has a security breach or an event," he says. "That means being in a mode where the organization is not completely wiped out as the result of a security breach."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Patel also discusses:
- Critical components of security resilience;
- The convergence of networking, security and the cloud;
- How the concept of zero trust is evolving.
Patel helps to redefine Cisco's SaaS business and strategy. He has over 20 years of senior leadership experience in enterprise software, building cloud-native applications while developing and delivering against long-term strategies. Prior to Cisco, he was chief product officer and chief strategy officer of Box.
