RSA CEO Rohit Ghai on Impact of New Regulations, Trends in Identity and AI


Rohit Ghai, CEO, RSA

The federal government has expanded its regulations for cybersecurity best practices with the long-awaited NIST CSF 2.0 standards, and the new guidelines place more emphasis on governance and overall risk management, as well as the “outsized role of identity in the context of a zero trust security posture,” said Rohit Ghai, CEO, RSA.

The new regulations, which replace the NIST rules adopted 10 years, include badly needed updates that recognize the many challenges in the threat environment facing everyone. “2.0 broadens the scope to of the document to beyond just critical infrastructure. Cybersecurity is now everybody’s problem,” Ghai said.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2024, Ghai also discussed:

  • The state of the identity technology market and key trends including passwordless authentication;
  • The implications of artificial intelligence tools to identity, and why AI is a double-edged sword for our sector;
  • Strategies for defending against a wide range of cybercriminals’ tactics such as MFA bypass.

Ghai provides oversight to the Archer, Outseer and RSA Security businesses as a member of the board of directors. He advises global customers on their digital and security transformation initiatives. Previously, he served as president and chief executive of Dell EMC’s Enterprise Content Division, Documentum.
