From surging sales and profitability and securing the supply chain to combating complexity and doubling down on detection and response, here’s a look at 10 notable statements made by Sophos CEO Kris Hagerman.
The Importance Of Getting The Basics Right
This [SolarWinds] was a very sophisticated attack. It’s sort of the equivalent of somebody wanting to rob your home by tunneling in under your house, waiting for you to go on vacation, and then sort of drilling holes up underneath your house. So it was a sophisticated, stealthy attack, and customers and partners should ensure they are protected and can detect those kinds of attacks.
But let’s start with ensuring that everyone gets the basics right. I mean, before you worry about people tunneling under your house, make sure you lock your front door and your back door. Make sure all your windows are locked. Make sure that you’ve got lights turned on at night on your front porch and your back porch. Make sure that you’ve got a security camera set up. Make sure you’ve got some motion detectors.
Do the basics first. Keep a clean, well-organized home operation and then set up the more sophisticated capabilities.
