Profiles in Leadership: Matanda DossJPMorgan Chase Cybersecurity Head on How to Fight Russia's Shifting Cyberattacks
Nation-state attackers are not just looking for major vulnerabilities to gain control of the enterprise. They are exploiting minor flaws to gain access and increase the severity of their attacks, says Matanda Doss, executive director of cybersecurity and technology controls for JPMorgan Chase commercial banking.
"Cyberwarfare, the Russia-Ukraine war, has really highlighted a new paradigm," Doss says. "As the war effort is frustrated, they are changing tactics, and as they change tactics, that changes the threat landscape. So we are constantly shifting and accommodating those changes as they come."
Doss recommends conducting internal penetration tests. "We do our own attacks. We attack ourselves. We look at the broad range of vulnerabilities out there and we say, 'Okay, where would we attack ourselves?'"
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group as part of the CyberEdBoard's ongoing Profiles in Leadership series, Doss discusses:
- Driving the second line of defense within a cybersecurity strategy;
- Why cyberwarfare poses the greatest threat to our industry;
- Defending against threats posed by Russia's ongoing war in Ukraine.
Doss has 25 years of technology experience, across software development, ecommerce, mobile applications, data security and financial systems. He serves as an information security manager and is responsible for a team of information security professionals, overseeing internal cybersecurity, risk and controls for the commercial bank. He is also responsible for helping business leaders and technology teams with their cybersecurity initiatives through JPMorgan Chase's Protect the Client program.
