In an interview with Rahul Raj, Chris Jacob, Global Vice President of ThreatQuotient emphasized the importance of threat segmentation, mitigation, and a comprehensive understanding of the threat landscape to stay ahead of advanced threats. He hopes that XDR (extended detection and response) will become a reality because the more we integrate disparate systems and inject cross-team intelligence, the more effective a company’s security posture will be.
The number of cyber-attacks and security breaches in the IT industry is expected to rise in the coming years. Hackers are expected to gain access to sensitive information from financial institutions and IT firms. To help secure their infrastructure and valuable information, many large corporations are implementing Threat Intelligence Management systems.
Chris Jacob is ThreatQuotient’s Global Vice President of Threat Intelligence Engineering. Chris has nearly 20 years of experience in information security, beginning with his time as a Marine Corps Battalion Information Systems Coordinator. Chris previously held executive positions at SourceFire, Fidelis Cybersecurity, and Webroot.
