00:23 — Cybersecurity has a lot to learn from data-driven teams within their own organizations, Rob says.
00:45 — Insights from these data-driven teams include application telemetry and debugging logs, which can be invaluable from a security standpoint.
01:01 — To prepare for communication with these data-driven teams, Rob encourages cybersecurity teams to explore “the root problems that you’re trying to solve through log ingestion and detection and alerting and such” while you “lean into” their expertise.
01:23 — Take the results of the exploration and go brainstorm with the data-driven teams that might be able to help. Rob thinks that with this strategy, security teams will find data or telemetry that will either solve the problem or positively contribute to finding a solution.
01:47 — Rob sums up the major benefits of this strategy, which positions cybersecurity to become a secondary stakeholder of some data. Security teams might be surprised at how much can be accomplished based on what’s already in an organization.
