Security leaders today are stressed with too much to do, too many security tools, too much complexity, too many alerts, and not enough skills. The challenge is that the tools providing the cybersecurity technology we rely on, don’t talk to each other. The reasons why vary – vendors are not incented enough to do so; there are competitive concerns; the APIs or standards sometimes don’t exist, or if they do, don’t work well. There is, however, one direction that the cybersecurity industry is starting to move in together to solve these challenges, and that direction is “open”.
