Active Defense: Ethical and Legal ConcernsAgari's John Wilson on How to Take a More Proactive Defensive Posture
Beset by increasingly aggressive threat actors, many security leaders have decided their best defense is a stronger offense. John Wilson of Agari offers insights into the active defense movement - including the ethical and legal concerns associated with it.
In a video interview at RSA Conference 2018, Wilson, the field CTO with Agari, discusses:
- The broad range of active defense tactics;
- Ethical and legal concerns to be considered;
- Whether active defense makes an organization more of a target.
Before joining Agari in 2010, Wilson held CTO positions at several Silicon Valley startups, including Brandmail Solutions, Concuro and 365 Media. Earlier, he spent more than six years at German software giant SAP, where he held a variety of senior engineering posts. As part of his work with SAP, he co-authored two patents in the areas of user interface design and data visualization.
