Galit Lubetzky Sharon is the co-founder and chief technical officer of Wing Security and a retired colonel in the IDF, elite to 8200 unit, the equivalent of our NSA. After 20 years or so leading IDF’s cybersecurity team, she co-founded Wing Security with Noam Shaar, IDF’s former CISO, to answer a growing need: Securing the SaaS layer.

This introduces not only a major shadow IT problem but also creates a whole new attack surface and opens stores to organization-sensitive data.
To set the stage for Wing Security, Lubetzky weighs in on why SaaS differs from other apps in terms of security and what needs to change to make sure it’s protected:
In this episode of Cybersecurity Unplugged, Lubetzky also discusses:
- Wing Security’s inventory of SaaS applications that are being used;

- The relationship between SaaS applications and the CISO.
