Fighting Blind: Why Vulnerability Management Demands More Than Scan-and-Patch

Presented by

Alastair Williams, EMEA Technical Director, Skybox Security

About this talk

Too many vulnerability management programs operate on incomplete or out-of-date scan data. What’s more, this data is rarely if ever correlated to their host’s place in the network, meaning efforts can be wasted on remediating already protected vulnerabilities while ignoring those left exposed to attack. To have a real impact on lowering your risk of cyberattack, organizations need to centralize and analyze data from their entire attack surface to narrow focus on the vulnerabilities most likely to be used in a cyberattack. In this webinar, you will learn: -What scanners miss in discovery, prioritization, remediation and oversight processes and how to fill in the gaps -How the intersection of your assets, networks, business and the threat landscape impact vulnerability risk -Why context-based approaches target remediation at your riskiest vulnerabilities and help identify patching alternatives -Insights from Skybox’s 2018 Vulnerability and Threat Trends Report mid-year update Join Alastair Williams, EMEA technical director for Skybox Security, as he explores how to get more value out of your data, visualize your attack surface and centralize vulnerability management to systematically reduce your risk of cyberattack.
