Avoiding Security Snake Oil: IDEA for Evaluating Emerging Technologies

New words enter the IT lexicon at a staggering pace. As security professionals, it can be a struggle to keep up. On the one hand, we want to develop security strategies that protect our organization and that are optimally suited for the resources we can afford to expend. On the other hand, our industry is known for its fair share of snake oil. What’s lacking in our industry is a simple methodology to quickly separate the snake oil from the real solution.

As Chief Technology Officer of RSA, a Dell Technologies business, Zulfikar Ramzan leads the development of RSA’s technology strategy and is responsible for bringing to market innovations that protect customers from advanced cyberthreats. He joined RSA in 2015 from Elastica, where he was Chief Technology Officer. Ramzan holds more than 50 patents and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering and computer science from MIT.
