Full Story:

In a joint opening keynote at RSA Conference London 2012, the top two executives at RSA ® , The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC), shared ideas and experiences about the critical issues affecting security organizations throughout the world – that outdated strategies, approaches and technologies are holding back security organizations from effectively protecting against rapidly evolving risks and advanced threats.

While addressing the crowd, Art Coviello, Executive Vice President for EMC and Executive Chairman of RSA attributed unbalanced security budget allocations, a shortage of skilled talent and the "perception versus reality gap" as key challenges hampering the effectiveness of security organizations.

Coviello offered an intelligence-driven security model based on a thorough understanding and reprioritization of business risk that results in risk mitigation strategies that when implemented produce threat-resistant organizations that also meet compliance mandates.  This model requires agile controls based on pattern recognition and predictive analysis, and the use of big data analytics to give context to vast streams of data from numerous sources.
