Managing the Weakest Link in the Cyber Attack Workflow

Presented by

Dr. Marshall Kuypers, Amar Singh

About this talk

The good attackers are really lazy, but in a good way! They automate every possible activity to ensure an error free successful attack, and one of the steps they automate is discovery. They need an entry point to your organisation, and they are constantly scanning the internet for that one open door to get in. The question is: Are you continuously scanning the internet to discover the doors you have open before the attackers do? Attack Surface Management is the act of continuously scanning and monitoring the web to discover your organisation's exploitable assets and mitigating those vulnerabilities. Join Dr. Marshall Kuypers and Amar Singh as they discuss how to effectively manage your internet attack surface and why this activity should be in the top three things to do on your priority list. Dr. Marshall Kuypers received his doctorate from Stanford, focusing on data-driven methods for quantifying cyber risk. Marshall was a fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) from 2014-2016 where he worked on projects ranging from policy to technical matters in computer security. Marshall has also modeled cyber risk for the Jet Propulsion Lab, and assessed supply chain risk in cyber systems with Sandia National Labs. He was also the Co-President of the Stanford Complexity Group while at Stanford.
