Despite billions in spending on cybersecurity, enterprise IT is less secure than it was 10 years ago, said Art Coviello, a venture partner at Rally Ventures. On Tuesday, at the first annual Structure Security conference in San Francisco, CA, Coviello explained the threat landscape facing enterprise IT and what needs to change.
Growth of web apps, mobile, and big data have meant our attack surfaces have increased dramatically. As users sacrifice privacy for rewards, these threats are often increasing quicker than we can keep up, outpacing the ability of IT to respond.
Coviello quoted Winston Churchill who said: “Evils can be created much quicker than they can be cured.”
