RSA Conference 2012: Need for a new approach to IT security

Zafar Anjum | Feb. 29, 2012
Kicking off the RSA Conference 2012 in San Francisco, Arthur Coviello, executive chairman of RSA, advocated a new approach to IT security: intelligence-driven security.

According to Coviello, this new approach could work now owning to the enormous data available to security professionals today. Big data can help enhance security like never before and systems could use data sets, analytics and actionable info to provide better security to user communities, he said.

The new security professionals will have to have an offensive mindset to intercept threats, he added.

The RSA conference will continue until March 2 when former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is scheduled to give his remarks.
