The IT security industry is still buzzing after news of a data breach at Yahoo in 2014, in which more than 500 million user accounts were hacked.

In the latest episode of Security Sessions, I spoke with Kevin O’Brien, CEO and founder of GreatHorn, about the key takeaway topics that CSOs should learn from the Yahoo breach.

Among the highlights of the video are the following sections:

1:09 Why is there such a gap between when the breach happened (2014) and when it was discovered/reported (now).

2:50 How CSOs can change/adjust their existing security policies around email.

4:40 What new phishing attacks can CSOs expect to see in the future based on this breach (and how will attacks get more sophisticated)?
