Tu empresa necesita protegerse de ciberataques y un método es “deception”. Estamos en la época en que los ataques dejaron de ser físicos y se conviertan en digitales. Luego de la CyberSecurity Summit, el vicepresidente de la unidad de Soluciones de Ciberseguridad Mastercard Global, Simon Hunt, afirmó que el 2019 sería un año en el que 9 de 10 empresas sufrirían un ciberataque. Y no solo las grandes, las pequeñas empresas también sufren de invasiones digitales. Sin embargo, la inversión y la falta de información son un problema, ya que la falta de gasto en seguridad cibernética, ha llevado a México al Top 10 de los países más atacados a nivel global.

This award is given to an exclusive group of C-suite women that have been influential in elevating their business to the next level whilst also promoting equality for all women within the sector and beyond.
Carolyn Crandall is an IT executive with more than 25 years of background in helping to build state-of-the-art technology markets in networking, security, and storage industries.

The momentum of IoT adoption is showing no signs of slowing, and with it comes increasingly material risk for both businesses and households. The quest for innovation has allowed for security to fall behind, and as a result, these devices have infiltrated our lives while creating an environment where attackers can exploit these solutions for anything from ransomware to extensive denial of service attacks, says Carolyn Crandall, chief deception officer at Attivo Networks.
One of the most important, and yet easily overlooked, elements of keeping an organization secure is creating an incident recovery roadmap–also known as an incident recovery plan. As its name implies, this plan provides a course of action to be taken following a security incident. Having been involved in the creation of several such plans over the years, I wanted to pass along some lessons learned.

Crandall was also named to CRN’s Power 100, an elite subset of the list.
I didn’t originally start out thinking I was going to become a sales or marketing professional. If you have ever played Monopoly, think of the stigma they put on that profession, and as such it really wasn’t top of mind. That said, while I was going to Santa Clara University, studying both electrical engineering and computer science, I took a job as an assistant to the VP of Marketing. This was my first introduction to a high-tech workplace. I ended up in sales based on a bet that I could outsell any of the sales reps in the office. I think my boss at the time thought it was never going to happen, but upon my achievement, he did honor the bet. My next two positions were exclusively sales and only after that did I become responsible for marketing programs.

“Because the cloud is a shared security model, traditional approaches to security aren’t working reliably,” said Carolyn Crandall, chief deception officer at Attivo Networks. “Limited visibility leads to major gaps in detection where an attacker can hijack cloud resources or steal critical information.”
