Corey Nachreiner, chief security officer, WatchGuard Technologies

The threats come at a scale that no enterprise has seen before, and it is harder to recruit and retain staff to detect and respond. Yet, how can business leaders determine if an MSP is capable of adapting as their organization's security needs change? WatchGuard's Corey Nachreiner shares advice.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Nachreiner discusses:

  • Challenges created by the expanding threat landscape;
  • What to look for when evaluating an MSP;
  • How to know if your MSP can truly adapt and scale.

Nachreiner spearheads WatchGuard's cybersecurity and security technology vision. Previously, he was the director of strategy and research and CTO at WatchGuard. Nachreiner has operated at the front line of cybersecurity for 23 years and for over a decade has been evaluating and making accurate predictions about information security trends. His expertise and ability to dissect complex security topics make him a sought-after speaker at forums such as Gartner, Infosec and RSA, and he is a regular contributor to leading publications including CNET, Dark Reading, Forbes, eWeek, Help Net Security, Information Week and Infosecurity. He delivered WatchGuard's "Daily Security Byte" video on Facebook and co-hosts "The 443 - Security Simplified" podcast.
