Yahoo CISO Details Challenge of Security at Scale

Since joining Yahoo as its CISO six months ago, Alex Stamos has been focused on one big challenge: how to do security at scale. In a standing-room-only session at the Black Hat USA conference, Stamos detailed why security products don’t work for Web-scale companies and explained what Yahoo is doing to improve its security posture.

“We have failed to make the Internet safe because we haven’t thought enough about scale,” Stamos said.
