Secure the Changing Risk Landscape from BEC, Other ThreatsCanon EMEA's Quentyn Taylor on Avoiding Cyber Hygiene Oversights
As ransomware attacks continue to dominate news headlines, Quentyn Taylor, a Canon director of information security, cautions organizations not to forget about "some of the other threats, like business email compromise," which continue to cripple organizations through financial and reputational damage.
"Focus on those basics," he says. "Even if you look at some of the really complicated attacks, what you see at their heart: You see a server that was exposed. You see an RDP server that shouldn't have been there. You see a forgotten VPN endpoint."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Taylor also discusses:
- How the move to large-scale remote working changed Canon;
- Today's threat landscape and how organizations can strengthen their defenses;
- How ransomware trends are changing cyber insurance.
Taylor is director of information security for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Canon, an imaging equipment and information systems provider. Before joining Canon, he worked in a variety of industries, including for internet service providers and startup businesses.
