Years ago, Mirza Asrar Baig identified a gap while working as an information security systems integrator. To address this gap, he envisioned the concept of digital risk protection technology. Today, as CEO of CTM360, he is promoting it as a way to provide “offensive defense.”
In an interview with Information Security Media Group, Baig discusses:
- The need for digital risk protection;
- What he means by “offensive defense”;
- The value of the tech stack outside the firewall.
