On Aug. 25, President Joe Biden invited about 25 technology, insurance, finance and education executives to the White House to discuss pressing cybersecurity issues such as supply chain and critical infrastructure and what could be done to address these concerns.
One of the executives with a seat at that table was Vishaal Hariprasad, the CEO of cyber insurance firm Resilience.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Hariprasad gives an insider's view of the White House meeting with Biden's cybersecurity team and also discusses:
- The agreements and disagreements between private industry and the White House over cybersecurity;
- The role that cyber insurance plays in changing security attitudes;

Hariprasad, best known as "V8," co-founded what is now known as Resilience in 2016 to bridge the divide between cyber insurance and cybersecurity and serves as CEO. A licensed insurance broker and producer and a veteran of both the U.S. Air Force and the cybersecurity industry, he also spent years with the National Security Agency.
