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.

Winning The Footrace Against Hackers

Number one, protect against those attacks ever taking place in the first place. Number two, set up the ability to detect them if they do take place. And number three, establish the ability to respond to them super quickly, ideally in an automated way, if they do take place.

Because once an attack like this occurs, it’s effectively a race. It’s a race between the bad guys who were moving laterally and everywhere they can in the network to find sensitive information and then get it out of there. And it’s a race for the good guys to identity where they are, detect it, and ensure that they kick them out and protect the data.

So number one, get the basics right, deploy a security strategy that is multilayered and that relies on world-class protection, detection, and response. And you need all three of them.
