CISO Insider - S2E6 - Data is trust with Emilio Escobar

Aug 18, 2021

Datadog CISO Emilio Escobar joins Chris Martinez on CISO Insider for a discussion on data security approaches for today’s cloud-first world. Emilio shares how he sees infosec: creating security responses based on people and teams over brute force blocking of apps and systems. This approach allows Datadog to defeat the enemy of complexity in IT service quality, and helps build a more inclusive culture at the company. By seeing data as trust, Emilio can influence his teams to find better solutions to data security problems and learn from typical pain points. We get into all this and a lot more in the chat today.
