RSA President Amit Yoran has outlined his plans to hone the company’s vision and growth strategy and leverage new technology amid the emergence of advanced threat actors, GovInfoSecurity reported Thursday.

Tom Field writes that Yoran, an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2015, also discussed challenges to the security industry, including the shortage of staff skilled in information security.

“Organizations that are investing a lot of dollars in information security don’t really understand the threat environment, they don’t really understand the requirements of what they need to do to better protect themselves and they don’t have a strategy for getting that done,” Yoran said in an ISMG Executive Sessions interview.

He noted that the company will work to address attack trends and fill gaps in security “by looking at the [root] of what’s occurring in the network… and being able to ingest and analyze that data to identify abnormal patterns and providing visibility into these attacks.”

Yoran took over as RSA president in October 2014 and succeeded Art Coviello, who is scheduled to retire from the division this month.
