7MS #513: Interview with Christopher Fielder and Jon Crotty of Arctic Wolf

Today we're joined by our friends Christopher Fielder and Jon Crotty from Arctic Wolf to talk about their interesting report on The State of Cybersecurity: 2022 Trends (note: you can get some of the report's key points here without needing to provide an email address). The three of us dig in to talk about some of the report's specific highlights, including:

  • Many orgs are running the bare minimum (or nothing!) for endpoint protection
  • Cyber insurance costs are going up, and some customers are unable to afford it - or they're getting dropped by their carrier altogether
  • Security is still not getting a seat at the decision-making table in a lot of orgs, and already-overburned IT teams taking on security as part of their job descriptions as well
  • Seems like everybody and their mom is moving infrastructure to the cloud, but few are managing that attack surface, thus increasing risk
  • The cyber skills gap remains a challenge - many security gurus are looking to get out of their current position, leading many orgs to hire inexperienced teams who make rushed/misinformed decisions about security tools and services, thus making the org less secure

P.S. this is Christopher's fifth time on the program. Be sure to check out his first, second, third and fourth interviews with 7MS.
