    Improving security requires reducing complexity

    Segment Description:
    The vast majority of breaches are not launched by nation states or foreign militaries, but individuals and cyber crime groups with varying degrees of experience, often looking for weaknesses in enterprise systems or processes. One of the primary reasons these actors are successful is the complex web of technologies deployed across enterprise networks by defenders in the search for a security panacea that does not exist. This discussion will focus on ways an organization can reduce complexity and improve security efficiency and scale.
