Ryan Kalember stories

Ryan Kalember is a seasoned author with a particular focus on the shifting landscape of cybersecurity. Possessing deep insights into data protection trends, Kalember's writing often highlights the challenges faced by Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), particularly emphasizing the pervasive issue of sensitive data breaches, a concern for over half of CISOs in the past year.

Kalember's work sheds light on the financial burden of insider threats, asserting the significance of these incidents, which have cost organisations an average of $15.4 million annually. He points to negligence and credential theft as predominant factors, contributing to the intricate web of security challenges that businesses face today.

In his exploration of the cyber threat panorama, Kalember offers an in-depth analysis of the staggering volume of malware proliferation, as revealed by Proofpoint's Human Factor 2021 report. He underscores the importance of understanding and addressing the evolving tactics employed by cyber criminals, who tirelessly innovate to exploit vulnerabilities, particularly in the human element of security.

Not one to overlook the strategic aspect of cybersecurity, Kalember has also reported on collaborative efforts within the tech industry, such as the unity between Okta, CrowdStrike, Netskope, and Proofpoint in developing a robust zero trust security strategy. His writing underscores the need for integrated approaches in response to the upsurge in remote work and the associated security demands.

Aware of the importance of staying ahead of cyber threats, Kalember frequently reflects on the insights shared by boards of directors, gauging their perspectives on the risk landscape. His contributions serve as a valuable resource for those seeking to understand and navigate the complex and ever-changing domain of cybersecurity.
