HP: When It Comes to Security, Look at the Big Picture

The modern world of IT security risks is one that is constantly evolving. It's a reality that Andrzej Kawalec, Global Chief Technology Officer at HP Enterprise Security Services lives and breathes every day.

In an interview with eSecurityPlanet Kawalec explained what his group is doing to try and help HP and its clients stay ahead of the curve when it comes to IT security risks.

"What it comes down to for us is helping a CEO or a CIO to see all of their security events and then helping them to understand what it means to them," Kawalec said.

With HP's global scale and 54 million security users, Kawalec said that HP tracks some 2.5 trillion security events every month. That massive volume of data gives HP insight into threats and their sources as well as helping to provide direction in how to protect against security risks.
