How do you handle risk assessment and vulnerability management for IoT when multiple security patterns need assessment? There is a new frontier for security that requires breaking conventional control and mitigation assumptions before a Frankenmonster rises from your IoT project.
In this webinar, RiskSense CEO and Co-Founder Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala will discuss:
- The assessment of chaining together multiple vulnerabilities and the potential exploit path through flexible and fractured design components for IoT.
- Consideration for dynamically changing devices and utilization models that break traditional security and risk assessments.
- IoT risk and the growing need to incorporate threat data, unintentional device use-cases, and the mechanisms to keep constant control of the devices themselves.
Last month, Congress authorized $380 million in federal funding for states to improve and enhance election security. Do you have a plan to take full advantage your allotted funding?
While the priorities for states differ, many experts are recommending careful consideration of cybersecurity improvements as your top priority.
RiskSense would like to invite you to join us this webinar titled "Do More to Safeguard Your Election Systems". In this presentation we will discuss how to improve the security of your election systems, voter registration, and vote tabulation systems. We will suggest industry best practices to establish a more secure, scalable, and more sustainable approach to improving your state’s election security.
Is the status quo really an option? What do maritime stakeholders (shipping companies, terminal operators, cruise lines, port authorities) need to do to prevent, prepare for and respond to the next attack on the horizon?
To coin an old adage that has been used in many sports discussions and is also known as a principal of war, "The best defense is a good offense." This webinar will demonstrate tools and resources that maritime stakeholders can utilize to be Proactive and control their cyber risk.
This webinar, focused on maritime operations, will provide unique insights of the recent cyber events and emerging threats. We will also:
• Discuss nationally-recognized solutions and management approaches that can lead your organization to a proactive and predictive posture with a Cyber Risk Management strategy,
• Include experts from a “bench” of cybersecurity experts that are recognized internationally for their knowledge and skills,
• Demonstrate our Cyber Risk Management platform that can give you the “Situational Analysis and Awareness” that you need in today’s rapidly expanding and complex environment, and
• Learn how we can provide you the same resources that the Department of Defense, NASA, and other federal agencies use and trust, with RiskSense.
Attending this webinar will provide you and your staff valuable insights and offer a course of action that can be a game changer for all maritime organizations
This RiskSense Best Practices Webinar will dive into how organizations can reduce incident response costs with proactive vulnerability management. Security patches are an expensive undertaking for an organization, however the positive impacts outweigh the negative. This webinar will provide a framework for you to help make the case for fast patching, remediation, and improved security. We will provide tools, techniques, and processes to reduce the number of security incidents at your organization, and save a substantial amount of money.

The conventional approach to vulnerability and threat management is rapidly changing to a data-driven strategy in which remediation efforts are targeted to individual vulnerabilities based on their exploitability, exploit pulse, and environment.
This approach will revolutionize vulnerability management – especially in the remediation of most common vulnerabilities that are frequently exploited – but its success depends on the availability of reliable data, which can have many biases and uncertainties.
Weaponization analysis can be used for early warning, diagnosis, remediation prioritization, and prescriptive information on what to fix and how to fix vulnerabilities that matter.
While many vulnerabilities are identified, a few prove to be successful for attackers. In this talk we will present how AI will play a key role to ensure remediation recommendations that are targeted for vulnerabilities that is exploitable.
A recent, significant data breach in 2017 has caused people to take a deeper look into Apache Struts vulnerabilities. This weakness emphasized the impending risks for Apache Struts-based applications. Even today, scanners do not detect all known vulnerabilities. As of November 2017, the leading scanners still missed 14 total unique Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs).
In this webinar, we will analyze Apache Struts-related vulnerability weaponization patterns spanning the last decade. We will also provide insight into exploit patterns through a live exploit demonstration and explain how these patterns can define an organization’s risk management strategy.
Hear from RiskSense’s Anand Paturi (VP of Research and Development) and Barry Cogan (Senior Security Analyst) as they guide us through the live demonstration and provide insights into exploit patterns
and how attacks can be avoided.
Morgan Reed, Mike Lettman, and Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala
In this webinar, Morgan Reed (CIO) and Mike Lettman (CISO) from the State of Arizona will discuss with RiskSense CEO Srinivas Mukkamala a case study on how the State of Arizona has implemented a proactive cyber risk management program that uses a credit score like model for assessing threats and remediating those that matter most.
Mr. Reed, Mr. Lettman, and Dr. Mukkamala will continue and expand on their conversation initially started during a learning lounge panel at this year's 2017 NASCIO Conference. They will dive into the details of how their risk management approach has enabled IT to better measure and communicate risk to business leaders, and strategically focus on the most imminent cyber vulnerabilities in their environment.

The impact of malware outbreaks in 2017 is short lived compared to the ones we saw a decade ago. One of the key observations in 2017 is we have seen an attack that was infectious across the Internet and also an attack that was not infectious but had similar significant impact.
Cyber epidemics are starting to afflict all business by impacting critical IT infrastructure. To increase the organization’s resilience against cyber-epidemics, you need to validate your attack surface and its susceptibility to attacks.
Cyber-attacks tend to resemble a power law distribution in which a few dozen infiltration vectors account for most breaches and a “long tail” consisting of a large number of less common infiltration vectors account for the rest. It is important to provide timely and accurate information to keep the number of infiltrations low and the impact to your business reduced.
What you will learn from this webinar:
- How to prioritize what is most important when an attack happens.
- Visibility into your attack surface and how to validate what the exposure is.
- How to establish a metric based risk management program.

Are we prepared to deal with malevolent AI? Artificial Intelligence (AI) can bolster defenses by analyzing vast volumes of data and assist cyber security professionals the converse is true as well; malevolent AI can assist hackers find their targets faster and launch attacks faster. Finding effective vulnerability threat pairs is difficult for multiple reasons. In an asymmetric war defenders have to know all possible vulnerability threat pairs, while an attacker will get away by knowing just a few successful ones. Our goal is to achieve a proof of principle for how we can predict successful vulnerability threat combinations using AI, without the need to brute force thousands of combinations. In this webinar, RiskSense CEO Srinivas Mukkamala will discuss with RiskSense Security Researchers Sean Dillon and Ben Mixon-Baca a recent case study where the combination of human expertise and Artificial Intelligence (AI) was able to mimic a human hacker to find vulnerable threat pairs and launch exploits at a tremendous scale.

The adoption of Internet of Things (IoT), Software-Defined Networks, and Microservices without proper security controls have created a broader attack surface for cyber adversaries, whereby a few infiltration vectors account for most compromises while facing less common and hard to detect infiltration vectors. In this context, Artificial Intelligence (AI) can bolster defenses by analyzing vast volumes of data and assist cyber security professionals in their day-to-day operations. However, the same tools can be leveraged by hackers to find their targets faster and launch attacks quicker to disrupt business operations and attack industrial controls.
In this webinar, renowned cyber security expert Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala will discuss how “malicious AI” could make today’s “cyber carnage” even worse. He will share result from a research study that RiskSense conducted to illustrate how human expertise in combination with AI can be leveraged to mimic a human hacker to find vulnerable threat pairs and launch exploits at scale. Dr. Mukkamala will also discuss how to transition from the traditional human expert model to an AI-based interactive, and iterative model to defend against machine-driven high frequency attacks.
