The top five requirements for External Attack Surface Management (EASM)

Presented by

Rob Gurzeev, CEO & Co-founder of CyCognito

About this talk

As organizations adapt to the structural changes imposed by digital transformation, they find it nearly impossible to identify, classify, and monitor all of their internet-facing assets. This problem becomes magnified as organizations grow in complexity through expansion along with mergers and acquisitions, thereby making their asset portfolios reach into the tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands. Losing track of these assets provides easy opportunities for attackers to exploit vulnerabilities in an organization’s attack surface that do not comply with their security protocols. Deploying an external attack surface management program helps organizations discover and map an organization’s entire external attack surface and identifies the business context of assets. It then tests the attack surface, looking for the path of least resistance which can be found in critical points of exposure that attackers can most easily exploit. Join Rob Gurzeev, CEO and Co-founder of CyCognito, as he explains the top five requirements to launch a successful external attack surface management program. In this webinar, you'll learn: - How to discover your organization’s entire external attack surface to gain ultimate visibility into all your company’s assets thereby reducing the surface area for potential threats - How to attribute assets to their proper owners so you can classify them by business purpose to streamline solutions to vulnerabilities - How to automate continuous testing for your attack surface to fill in gaps in staff skill sets or resources to decrease time-to-detection (MTTD) and time-to-remediation (MTTR) - How to create a scoring model by business risk to cut down on alert noise and prioritize the biggest risks so teams know where to focus immediately - How to integrate into existing vulnerability management workflows and provide actionable remediation planning to achieve your risk management goals

CyCognito is solving one of the most fundamental business problems in cybersecurity: the need to understand how attackers view your organization, where they are most likely to break in and how you can eliminate that risk. CyCognito was founded by national intelligence agency veterans whose understanding of how attackers exploit blind spots led them to create a new approach to risk assessment. The Palo Alto-based company is funded by leading Silicon Valley venture capitalists and its mission is to help organizations eliminate their “shadow risk” — critical security risk that is often unknown to them. The volume of these unknown unknowns has widened dramatically as organizations have transformed from IT environments with well-defined perimeters to hyperconnected, fluid IT ecosystems that span on-premises, cloud, partner and subsidiary environments. CyCognito addresses shadow risk with a category-defining, transformative platform that automates offensive cybersecurity operations to provide reconnaissance capabilities superior to those of attackers. Its next-generation security risk assessment platform enables Fortune 500 and other leading companies around the world to autonomously discover, understand, prioritize and eliminate their organization’s shadow risk based upon a global analysis of their external attack surface and the attack vectors that a real attacker would likely exploit.
