Demystifying Kubernetes Vulnerabilities & Their Relationship to Risk Management

Presented by

Dane Grace, Technical Product Manager at Rapid7 and Nick Cavalancia, Cybersecurity Expert at Ultimate Windows Security

About this talk

Containerizing applications has grown in popularity over the years, making Kubernetes a core part of an organization’s critical workloads. Because these containerized applications are Internet-facing, contain access to critical data, or both, they become targets of cyberattacks. And it’s not just the container itself; the target can be Kubernetes, Docker, Linux, or even cloud services hosting the environment. What’s missing is visibility into each layer of your Kubernetes clusters and the applications they host; from misconfigurations to needed patches, to the container code itself – without visibility into where your risks are, it’s impossible to form a mitigation and/or remediation plan. To add to the problem, containerizing applications and using cloud hosting completely changes who is responsible for security response when vulnerabilities are found, increasing the challenge of ensuring Kubernetes and everything it manages remains secure. During this webcast you'll learn about: • Exposures within your Kubernetes environment • The vulnerabilities that exist at each layer • Recent vulnerabilities to check for
