Protecting the Attack Surface – Rob Gurzeev – PSW #698

What does it mean to protect the attack surface? What's the difference between attack surface protection vs. attack surface management? Rob Gurzeev, CEO and Founder at Cycognito, joins us to discuss why attack surface monitoring needs to run across the entire infrastructure. It's not just about open ports, but finding the assets that are exposed or exploitable, or abandoned, that create the greatest risk.
