Hotshot CEO on need for more than standards to protect information from Chinese attacks

Aaron Turner, CEO and Founder of HotShot, a maker of compliance messaging tools, remarks, “As a general rule of thumb, when information security leadership within an organization ask me if NIST standards will help them, I can only tell them that compliance with NIST standards is an excellent way to protect an organization from yesterday’s threats and vulnerabilities.  Due to the very nature of the way that NIST standards are created, edited and published, there will always be a gap between attackers’ capabilities and the protections that NIST promotes through their publications and standards.”
