Shadow Risk Elimination – Rob Gurzeev – BSW #164
This interview will cover the idea of Shadow Risk and why it's something your organization can’t ignore. Specifically, we'll talk about why your security efforts have to start with mapping and managing your attack surface, how that's gotten harder with digital transformation, and how legacy approaches to addressing the problem -- including vulnerability management and penetration testing -- and even more recent approaches like Security Ratings Services, are out of touch with your IT infrastructure and, worse still, lag behind the way attackers operate.
