Comment on The Interrupt-driven Life of a CISO by Eugene Davydov

John, as a prior CISO of a financial services firm myself as well, I couldn’t agree more with your article and the sentiment you articulated so thoughtfully. The adrenaline rush of the ‘here-and-now’ surrounding fast paced CISO-level decision-making, combined with the sometimes instant gratification of solving critical business challenges in near real-time under very tight deadlines, is tricky to replicate in roles which have the luxury of introspection. However, it is precisely the deep-thinking analysis which often brings about the best results, particularly over the long-term horizon. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts on this important topic, John!

Comment on Identity Attack Vectors, by Haber and Rolls by Eugene Davydov

Thanks for sharing this, John! The book appears to be an excellent read, I will definitely add it to my 2020 reading list. The authors appear to support the (now proven) adage that ‘identity is the new perimeter’, and that the Zero Trust model is a worthwhile pursuit, insofar as IAM is concerned: “For identity as an attack vector, threat actors will target a persona and exploit weaknesses in how these account relationships are managed.” Looking forward to reading your forward as well!
