Jeremiah Grossman: Focus on ransomware, SDLC, and endpoints
With so many elements in information security — application, network infrastructure, the endpoint, perimeter defenses, and data-centric approaches — it’s easy to fall in the trap of touting one as more important than the other. But it’s a mistake to consider information security as a series of silos when it’s actually an intersection of different areas. That overlap is most evident with application and endpoint security.
For Jeremiah Grossman, the new chief security strategist at security vendor Sentinel One, application security and endpoint security are just different steps in the kill chain. As the founder and former CTO of the consultancy WhiteHat Security, Grossman has been the go-to-expert for web application security for years, and his new focus on endpoint security at Sentinel One does not mean that he has given up on securing web applications.
