RSA executive chairman Art Coviello said that if 2011 was the year of the attack, then 2012 will be the year of resiliency and adaptation within the industry.
In an open letter, Coviello said the company's experiences of this year "have indeed made us stronger and smarter".
“Our society has made unimaginable progress over the past 20 years through advances in information technology. It's our responsibility to sustain this advancement through a trusted digital world,” he said. He added that never in his career has he known CEOs and corporate boards to be as interested in security as they are now; and he cited one common theme: persistent, advanced and intelligent threats.
