Q&A: Paul Nguyen, President of Global Security Solutions at Invotas
Data security challenges and the shift to automation are the topics discussed with CSG Invotas’ Paul Nguyen
Eurocomms.com: What are the most significant cybersecurity challenges that CIOs of communications service providers (CSPs) currently face?
Paul Nguyen: There’s no doubt about the increased sophistication and unpredictability of cyber attacks across the board; one to nine new malware attacks occur every minute of every day, for instance.
There’s no way traditional security responses can be as effective as they need to be in the current environment. There’s a long time horizon time between threat discovery and attack containment; many of today’s response systems are not built to scale across a large enterprise; and new vulnerabilities and attack vectors are continually discovered, so security teams are continually playing catch-up.
