Stan Black, chief security officer (CSO) at Citrix, rarely experiences a dull moment in the workplace. Black said he averages 22,261 security events per minute on a typical day, with much of the traffic apparently originating in China.
As the company's very first CSO, Black creates, manages and influences the security direction that helps secure Citrix itself as well as its customers. In a video interview with eSecurityPlanet he details his role as CSO and explains how security integrates into the overall Citrix infrastructure.
Black said he looks at security as an enterprise-wide requirement, which also involves multiple sets of compliance regulations.
"If you think about the compliance sphere it's really about 360 standards, regulations and laws around the world, and those can be broken down into about 3,900 control objectives," he said.
Black, who has been the Citrix CSO since October 2013, uses a variety of tools and techniques to help determine what attacks are about and also uses multiple technologies to secure user credentials.
