Jason Keirstead – Standardizing on Security Tool Integrations

Today we are joined by Altaz Valani from Security Compass and Jason Keirstead, Distinguished Engineer & Chief Technical Officer of Threat Management at IBM as well as Co-Chair of Open Cybersecurity Alliance. Security tool integrations are largely custom efforts today. That investment alone prevents loose coupling of our security tool architectures and timely delivery of security insights to key decision makers. Jason shares his insights on the work going on at Open Cybersecurity Alliance (OCA) to help solve this problem. The holy grail of an integrated security fabric that shares information across a toolchain can transform our ability to rapidly adapt to a changing threat landscape and allow for early detection of threat actor behavior. Jason shares his vision of how everyone can play a part in making this a reality, from customer procurement to vendor adoption of security standards.
