At a time when diversity is a key topic within the cybersecurity leadership and workforce, MK Palmore, formerly of the FBI, says we also need a diversification of skills to help improve breach defense and response.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Palmore discusses:

  • The cybersecurity leadership challenge;
  • The diversity of skills now needed;
  • How leadership and diversity also apply to technology.

Palmore is vice president and field CSO, Palo Alto Networks. Most recently, he was assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s San Francisco Cyber Division. Prior to joining the FBI, he served as a commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps.
