Taking a reactive approach to IT security is a risky proposition. Besides presenting unnecessary operational hurdles, making patch, update and configuration decisions based on a flood of data from disparate scanning and logging solutions can still leave the door open to attack.

 

During this presentation, Dr. Eric Cole will demonstrate how a proactive enterprise security testing program can give you a new perspective on your organization's overall risk preparedness. You'll learn how to gain actionable data about the health of your environment, adding efficiencies to your security practices while optimizing business operations.

Dr. Cole will show you how to leverage proactive security testing programs to:

  • Maximize remediation efficiency by proactively identifying and addressing exploitable weaknesses rather than blindly patching and updating systems.
  • Assess the real impact of potential attacks by tracing paths of exposure from low-level systems to mission-critical information assets.
  • Assign security resources intelligently to address critical risks while minimizing business interruptions.
  • Justify security initiatives by sharing clear assessments of enterprise risk preparedness with colleagues in the line of business.
You'll also see how the right security testing data can resonate with business leaders -- opening the lines of communication and ultimately enabling the business through risk mitigation, added operational efficiencies, regulatory compliance, and improved customer satisfaction and retention.
