Adlumin's Mark Sangster on How Security Is Now a Business Risk to Manage
Mark Sangster, vice president and chief of strategy, Adlumin

Far too many companies think that backups and cyber insurance will see them through a cybersecurity breach, says Mark Sangster of Adlumin. He shares his advice to enterprise security leaders who want to treat cybersecurity as the business risk it is.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Sangster also discusses:

  • Why so many enterprises are ill-prepared for ransomware and other incidents;
  • Why backups and insurance are not enough;
  • How to prove duty of defense.

Sangster, author of "No Safe Harbor: The Inside Truth about Cybercrime and How to Protect Your Business," is a go-to subject matter expert for leading publications and media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal and Forbes, covering major data breach events. Before joining Adlumin, Sangster established his 25-year career in information security at such industry giants as Intel Corp., BlackBerry, and Cisco Systems. His experience unites a strong technical aptitude and an intuitive understanding of regulatory agencies, shifts risk trends and influences thought leaders.
