“Our approach to cybersecurity is broken in a number of fundamental ways - from how we measure the effectiveness of solutions to how we implement them," he says.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group as part of its RSA Conference 2021 coverage, Sels discusses:

  • Why cybersecurity spending is going up but global risk is not coming down;
  • How our approach to cybersecurity is broken and why it’s time for a “reboot”;
  • Steps security leaders and their teams can take today to safeguard their organizations more effectively.

As a vice president at BlackBerry, Sels, who has more than 20 years of technical and leadership experience in cybersecurity, advises clients’ C-suites on maximizing the value and impact of their cyber programs. Before joining BlackBerry Cylance, he was the founding CISO at DarkMatter LLC, a cybersecurity consulting firm.
