Looking Glass #1: Understanding Your Attack Surface

Presented by

Cody Pierce, Chief Product Officer, LookingGlass; Sharon Smith, Moderator

About this talk

Increasing efforts to modernize and digitally transform business operations means it’s easy for organizations to lose track of their assets, or not know about assets acquired by business or operating units (“shadow IT”). But how can you protect what you don’t know about? That’s why understanding your attack surface is critical. In this session, Looking Glass cybersecurity expert, Cody Pierce, will discuss what an “attack surface” is, how to determine your digital footprint, and why your organization’s attack surface is likely growing rapidly. He will also share how managing your attack surface by taking the adversary’s view – a different perspective than most cyber defense strategies – is critical to identifying assets, maintaining effective inventory, and prioritizing mitigations. In this session, you’ll learn: • What attack surface management is and why it’s important • How attack surface management can fit into your existing cybersecurity program • Use cases where attack surface management can inform, optimize, and enhance a variety of cyber operations
