July 2022 by Marc Jacob Valentin Jangwa, Global Security Mag

At Infosecurity London, Bitdefender presented its XDR security solution for Network, e-mails, endpoints, identities, and all the Information System for the Organisations.
Danny O’Neill CISM, Director Global MDR Operations at Bitdefender, advises Organisations to also invest in the Human factor.

Global Security Mag : How was Infosecurity London 2022 ?

Danny O’Neill: All in all, and despite the issues with the strike, there is a pretty good audience and we are happy with that.
We can see that Cybersecurity is key topic for all kind of Organisations.

Global Security Mag : What do you think about the UK Cybersecurity market and globally ?

Danny O’Neill: The Cybersecurity market is very dynamic.
The US market is quite like the U.K. one.
The scandinavian countries and the Netherlands can be handled the same way.
But for countries as France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Spain, we need more to work with partners to keep on growing. The Services and the products are the same, but from one country to another, we have to deal with different cultures, languages, when it comes to Cybersecurity strategies. For example, in Germany, the compliance is vital.
The English market has been quite mature in terms of Managed Detection Response. We have to be more proactive. There are also differences between the Public Sector and the Private Sector.
The Public Sector often use computers with outdated operating systems and there is a need of training and expertise.

Global Security Mag : What are the strong points, the key differentiators?

The fact that We have all the different components under one roof.

Danny O’Neill: The important thing in modern security is to be proactive.
