TYSONS CORNER, VA April 23, 2015 — Executive Mosaic — ExecutiveBiz reported Wednesday on RSA Security President Amit Yoran urging security professionals to set aside the traditional approach to fighting cyber threats, noting that adopting a more iterative strategy could increase their chances of mission success.

“As an industry, we are on a journey that will continue to evolve in the years to come through the efforts of all of us here today, ” Yoran said Tuesday in a keynote at the RSA Conference earlier this week.

“Sitting here and awaiting instructions isn’t an option. And neither is what we’ve been doing – continuing to sail on with our existing maps even though the world has changed.”

Yoran, an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2015,  recommended five options – in the areas of vigilance, network visibility, identity and authentication, external threat intelligence and prioritization – that industry can consider in its bid to outmaneuver cyber adversaries.
