Bill Bernard, assistant vice president, security strategy, Deepwatch

As budgets tighten in anticipation of economic hardships, cybersecurity threats only continue to grow. Bill Bernard, CISSP of Deepwatch, advises security leaders to consider how senior management and the board view cybersecurity and then adjust how you prioritize people, technology and managed services.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, he discusses:

  • The reality of tighter budgets and increased threats;
  • The difference between investing in solutions and in features;
  • The growing role an MSSP can play to support your team.

Bernard describes himself as "a career information security professional who has learned through hard-won experience that the engineer's 'right answer' isn't always the right answer for the business." Bringing 20 years of experience to his security role at Deepwatch, he approaches information security as a necessity for all companies, but understands that one size does not fit all. With a top-down focus on information security, he says, any company can implement a security program appropriate to its needs.
