Security vendors and end users have access to the same technology and resources, if not more, than the threat actor community. However, the area where cybersecurity falls short as an industry is teamwork. Vendors and end users rarely talk to each other as a broader force. Thus, while innovation may happen for individual products, that innovation may not flow through a client’s work. Customers are hurt by a fragmented security landscape that may create gaps threat actors are ready to exploit.
This approach cannot last. The cybersecurity industry needs to bring change and start collaborating.
