The Secret to Winning IT Security Roulette

Presented by

Thomas Hatch, SaltStack CTO and technical founder

About this talk

There is too much talk in IT security and not enough action. But the reality is you probably don't have the people or the tools to effectively act to secure your IT infrastructure. There is hope. Let's fix IT. Join the CTO of SaltStack, Tom Hatch, for a presentation on hope for the future of IT security. The pace of infrastructure growth and resulting complexity is overwhelming. Old security tech and processes, combined with overwhelmed and understaffed IT and security teams, simply can't protect against a new and evolving threat landscape. Security exploits are proliferating faster than ever before. You already know this, but according to SC Magazine in the first half of 2019 there were almost 4000 unique data breaches resulting in more than 4 billion records being compromised. The hard truth is almost all of these security breaches could've been avoided. Gartner said 99% of exploited vulnerabilities occur on misconfigured, unpatched systems KNOWN to IT security teams. Security and IT teams need help winning security roulette. Let's fix IT with fully automated, truly collaborative vulnerability remediation.
