Enable your security team to build better remediation partnerships

Presented by

Anne Marie Zettlemoyer, Chief Security Officer at CyCognito, and Mike Johnson, Co-host of the CISO Series podcast

About this talk

One of the largest challenges for Security professionals and leaders is to create sustainable operational workflows to remediate critical risks. Security teams are focused on and are incentivized to identify and remediate critical vulnerabilities exposing IT assets or networks to a potential data breach. However, IT Operations and other key stakeholders have their own priorities and incentives, such as maintaining uptime, which does not always align with a Security team’s objectives to patch critical vulnerabilities but is needed to help remediate them. Thus, it’s critical that the data provided is trustworthy and proves these vulnerabilities are indeed real threats. Establishing credibility is vital to facilitate remediation faster when competing with other priorities. Join Anne Marie Zettlemoyer, Chief Security Officer at CyCognito, and Mike Johnson, Co-host of the CISO Series podcast, as they sit down for a fireside chat to discuss how you can build better remediation partnerships between your Security team and leaders from other key functions in your organization. These partnerships are critical to ensure you accelerate mean-time-to-remediation (MTTR) and protect your company from attackers. In this webinar, you will learn: - How to establish credibility in your Security function through trustworthy data and proper identification of your organization’s most critical risks rather than overwhelming other teams with endless alerts - How to build strong relationships with leaders across your organization who are incentivized by different goals - How you can demonstrate that building a strong operational workflow to accelerate remediation time for critical vulnerabilities will also help achieve your colleagues’ 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.
