Phishing, Trojans and malvertising are the most common forms of attack. And despite significant security investments, organizations continue to be breached because of mistakes made by employees and partners, says Epstein, VP Advanced Security & Governance, Proofpoint.

In a video interview recorded at RSA 2014, Epstein discusses:

  • Results of the new Targeted Attacks Study;
  • How to address the human factor;
  • Effective security solutions to ward off advanced threats.

Epstein directs Proofpoint's global product marketing initiatives. He is also a lecturer at Stanford University and author of the popular trade book, Marketing Made Easy (Entrepreneur Magazine Press). Prior to joining Proofpoint, he was VP Marketing at Drobo (Data Robotics, Inc.), a prosumer and SMB storage appliance company; served as an executive at CloudShare, a cloud computing and virtualization SaaS company; was an Executive in Residence (XIR) at Mohr Davidow Ventures; and served as the Vice President of Marketing and Products at Scalent Systems.
