Many breached businesses lack the foundational controls that would have helped to prevent a data breach, says Piero DePaoli, senior director of security and risk at ServiceNow.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, DePaoli discusses:

  • Why data breaches continue to happen;
  • Foundational controls that are often found lacking in breached entities;
  • The biggest challenges to maintaining a strong foundation;
  • How ServiceNow is helping organizations address these vulnerabilities.

DePaoli is a senior director on ServiceNow's security operations and GRC product teams and has more than 20 years' experience building mobility, security and cloud solutions for enterprises. Prior to joining ServiceNow, DePaoli held similar positions at Symantec, iPass, UUNET and MCI WorldCom.
