Security Teams Confronting New Risks and RegulationsOkta's Chris Niggel on the New Era of Risk for Businesses
New regulations, such as California Consumer Privacy Act and the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation, are leading organizations to rethink how they secure customer data, whether on-premises or in the cloud. At the same time, businesses are subject to more risk from their third-party partners. Chis Niggel of Okta explains how these two trends are complicating enterprise security.
"We have data in the cloud. We have partners all over the world that we are working with, and we need to have strategies to protect that data," he says.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Fraud and Breach Summit in Seattle, Niggel discusses:
- How regulations are forcing businesses to rethink data security;
- How businesses inherit the risk from their third-party partners;
- What CISOs need to know about zero trust in a hybrid cloud world.
Niggel is senior director of security and compliance at Okta, where he is responsible for corporate compliance, application assessment, and responding to customer security inquiries. Previously, he spent six years leading the adoption of cloud technologies at LinkedIn. He started his career designing, developing and delivering content management, system administration and messaging solutions for customers such as Nestle, Cisco, AMD, Telus and the U.S. Department of Defense.
