Vulnerability Management In the Time of a Pandemic

Presented by

Brian Martin, Vice President of Vulnerability Intelligence, Risk Based Security

About this talk

We scheduled this discussion to talk about the trends we’re seeing in the vulnerability data from 2019, but guess what; that seems like a lifetime ago now. So we’ve shifted focus. Instead, we want to use this time to try to do something more valuable for our community. We want to rise to this moment and confront these new challenges we’re all facing head on. No nonsense, this isn’t a product demo, just a focused look at the state of vulnerability intelligence and how it applies in this new, changing time. Here’s what we’ve got: The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to change our way of life, while threatening the global economy, but the work of risk management professionals is more important, and threatened, than ever. Over 22,000 vulnerabilities were aggregated by our VulnDB team during 2019. Brian Martin breaks down what we’ve learned, and how we apply that knowledge to a mid-pandemic world, where cyber criminals exploit the panic, hospitals are hit by ransomware, supply chains are disrupted, and key regulations are temporarily weakened.
