Why open source and collaboration are the future of security

In this podcast recorded at Black Hat USA 2014, Greg Martin, CTO at ThreatStream, talks about why open source and collaboration are the key drivers of information security innovation. He raises an important question – what will happen if we don’t start actively sharing information?

He also discusses the downside of using honeypots as defensive technologies in smaller security architectures, and how that complexity can be avoided.

Greg Martin is a cybersecurity expert with over 15 years industry experience. He was actively involved battling cyber criminals as a technical adviser to the FBI, the United States Secret Service, and NASA, and has consulted with numerous Fortune 500 companies as a practice-leading consultant for ArcSight (acquired by HP). Greg is an advocate of the open source movement and the original author of Bad Harvest (Formerly ArcOSI), which spawned a revolution in data driven security tools and products.
