People, Capital and Continuous Monitoring

MIDDLE MARKET EXECUTIVE | March 7, 2017

With Ray Rothrock, RedSeal Chief Executive Officer

MME: What are your priorities when it comes to growing this middle market business over the next 12 months?

“My job is to resource the company, people and capital, and maybe technology if that’s needed, but it’s mostly people because my priority is to grow this business globally as fast as I can, point one. Point two, we have a database and we’re doing a full conversion of that database so that we can actually get into a full, continuous monitoring across a massive, global network like a large company would have.

Right now, it’s batch. We run our softwares at batch and I want to run it continuously, so we’re in a transition. So, two things, advance sales globally and to get our database up so we can do this continuous monitoring because that’s where the future is. Those are the two things. And so what do I need for that? I need people, and so I need money, so I’m in the fundraising mode right now. That’s my number one job, that’s the key resource I can bring to RedSeal, capital.”

Ray Rothrock, chairman & CEO of RedSeal, examines the importance of digital resilience in the overall cybersecurity strategy.

Who says prevention is better than cure? Since the advent of networks and hacking, prevention, coupled with detection, has been the primary cyber strategy to counter cyberattacks. But, with the exponential increase in the pace and complexity of digital connections, and sophistication of the attackers, this approach is falling short as the recent Shamoon attacks in Saudi Arabia so clearly demonstrated.

Clearly, we need more and better prevention. But, here’s the cold, hard truth: It’s not a question of if your organisation will suffer a security breach but when – no matter how good your prevention is. Cyber-attacks are now so advanced that, should a hacker’s attention turn to your company, the attack will almost certainly succeed in getting inside your network.  Your mission should be to shut the attacker down – and fast.

Pursuing a Cyber Vision: A Call for New Leadership Led an Investor to Roll Up His Sleeves

….It’s very noisy [and crowded in the cyber security market].  95% of those companies are focused on prevention and detection — which is necessary, but is not sufficient in today’s cyber environment with the threat field we are facing.
