Kevin Magee: Focus on the archer. (CSO) [Career Notes]

Chief Security Officer of Microsoft Canada Kevin Magee shares his background as a historian and how it applies to his work in cybersecurity. Likening himself to a dashing Indiana Jones, Kevin talks about how he sees history unfolding and the most interesting things right now are happening in security. Spending time tinkering with things in the university’s computer room under the stairs gave way to Kevin’s love affair with technology. As Chief Security Officer, Kevin says he uses an analogy: “I think we focus on the arrows, not the the archer” meaning there’s too much focus on the attacks rather than the ones mounting them. As a historian and witness to our current history, Kevin sees the changes all affecting cybersecurity. We thank Kevin for sharing his story with us.
