    During his keynote at last year’s RSA Security Conference (titled: Escaping Security’s Dark Ages), Amit Yoran, president of RSA, lambasted the industry as failing its customers. In a related interview with Fortune Magazine, Yoran stated, “Let’s do things differently; let’s think differently; let’s act differently – because what the security industry has been doing has not worked.”

    Now in the 10 months since last year’s industry get-together (note: RSA 2015 was in April), the overall state of cybersecurity has only continued to devolve. Large organizations are moving more and more workloads to public and private cloud infrastructure and proceeding further with mobile and IoT applications making it more difficult to monitor and defend sensitive IT and data assets. Meanwhile, the global cybersecurity skills shortage has gotten even worse.
