Monitor, Detect, Defend! Elevating Threat Intelligence with MDR and AI - A Cyber Security Special with Keiron Holyome, Vice President, UKI & Emerging Markets at Blackberry

Published on: 11th September, 2023

Did you know that from March 2023 to May 2023, threat actors deployed 11.5 attacks per minute! Clearly, as cybersecurity threats continue to escalate in scope, scope and sophistication, so the imperative to evolve and strengthen our defenses must escalate too!

With Monitor, Detect and Defend our mantra this episode marks a deep dive across cyberattack risk escalation, supported by the latest findings from the BlackBerry Global Threat Intelligence Report - especially issues around software supply chain, talent gaps and cost pressures, and all at a time where attackers are diversifying their tools in an attempt to bypass defensive controls.  

We will unpack the critical role of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) alongside that of automation, trusted partnership, skills uplift, evaluation advice and cyber community knowledge sharing. Further, we explore the use of AI to help to close the human skills gap, strengthen cyber-resilience and reduce daily alert noise fatigue – or in other words - help organizations of any size to better 'nip cyber-attacks in the bud'.

So to discuss all the above I am delighted to be joined by Keiron Holyome - Vice President, UKI & Emerging Markets at Blackberry
