In this episode of the Endace Packet Forensic files, I talk with Tony Krzyzewski, Director of SAM for Compliance, Global Cyber Alliance Ambassador, and New Zealand’s Convenor on the International Standards Organization SC27 Information Security, Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection Standards Committee.

With more than four decades working in IT and Networking, and almost three decades in cybersecurity, there are few more experienced practitioners than Tony. In this episode, Tony draws on his extensive experience to give some practical, pragmatic advice about where organizations need to focus to improve their cyber defenses. He highlights the importance of focusing on operational management processes for any cyber security program and reinforces the mantra I have been hearing from many CISOs about how the importance of regularly practising and performing “Security FireDrills”.

Tony talks about his long-time campaign to encourage organizations to adopt DMARC, “Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance” policies to improve protections against fraudulent email and phishing attacks.

Finally, Tony gives his perspective on the massive surge in SOAR and XDR solutions in the market and how that is impacting organizations’ security postures, and puts on his predictions hat as he talks about what to look out for in the year ahead.
