Hunter Ely, director of field strategy, Palo Alto Networks

It's never been more important to manage one's attack surface, and for public sector entities and educational institutions, the attack surface has never been so complex. Hunter Ely of Palo Alto Networks shared insights on how to reduce this complexity.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Ely discussed:

  • The evolving attack surface;
  • The challenges of managing increased complexity;
  • How to address these challenges - amid the skills crisis.

Ely has over 20 years of experience in operational, tactical and strategic roles within major research universities and health science centers. He has held positions within networking, infrastructure, and security organizations - including cyber forensics, sales engineering and leadership positions. Prior to Palo Alto Networks, Ely spent seven years as a chief information security officer at Tulane University.

This is one of four Winning Strategies for SLED videos. The other three topics are Resource Constraints; Advanced Attacks; and Too Much Information, Too Many Silos, Not Enough Insight.
