Scott Gerlach, director of ..., 8 Nov 2012 [cached]
Scott Gerlach, director of information security operations at web hosting company Go Daddy, said a sense of trust within one's industry is necessary to build awareness about critical threats â€" as they can run the gamut from attention-grabbing attacks led by hacktivists to stealthy malware launched by nation-states.
Weeding through the central security concerns for a business requires a network that is in touch with its operational priorities.
“It's really hard to operate effectively in a vacuum,†Gerlach told before Thursday's SC Congress Chicago show. Gerlach was one of several panelists who spoke about the latest threats.
In April, the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based company founded the online Hosting Security Forum, where hosting service providers can discuss and share critical security information that can help protect users. Gerlach said forums, and other venues that bring industry professionals together, help to scale one major hurdle: building a sense of trust among companies and organizations.
“Figuring out who is going to get this threat info and can I trust them â€" that's one of the hardest things to do,†he said.
Gerlach also mentioned the importance of having security incident drills that include PR and legal teams, so that a company is able to respond properly internally and with customers or the public, should an incident occur.

Scott Gerlach, GoDaddy's director of information security operations, said it appeared the accounts had been compromised because account owners independently clicked on a malicious link or were compromised by a computer virus that stole password credentials. He advised users to enable GoDaddy's two-step authentication option, which sends a second password to users' cellphones every time they try to log in.
