Vulnerability Management

Robots, Ninjas, Pirates and Building an Effective Vulnerability Management Program (Slides & Video)


Watch my latest presentation about vulnerability management given at Bsides Boston 2015:

What is this talk about? Well, a robot, a ninja and a pirate get into a fight. The question is: who wins? While we can debate this question until the end of time, likely have fun in the process; it’s a waste of time. Who are the robots, ninjas and pirates in your environment? What roles do they play in the vulnerability management process?  We debate how to build a vulnerability management program all the time, however we are still spinning our wheels. Unlike the robot, ninja, pirate battle, there are concrete facts that will help you build a successful program, and avoid smoke bombs, swords, and robot death rays. Who wins? Find out in this presentation and learn how to protect your booty.
