About this talk

Unmanaged assets exposed to the internet represent critical hidden risks at tremendous scale for modern enterprises. While most organizations feel they have this situation under control and are confident in their risk reduction practices across their external attack surfaces, the truth is the majority find a significant amount of unmanaged assets when they search for them and struggle to resolve this serious issue. Join guest speakerJess Burn, Senior Analyst at Forrester Consulting, as she provides a deep dive analysis of the results of a recent online study commissioned by CyCognito with 304 security and IT operations professionals to evaluate risk management practices related to external assets. In this webinar, you will learn about these key findings: - How collaboration challenges exacerbate threats related to unmanaged assets, thereby making these threats more difficult to identify, prioritize, and remediate - How 81% of respondents to this survey fall short of executing security testing on their full inventory of assets despite considering security testing is important for risk management - Why one in four respondents takes weeks or longer to respond to high-severity risks due to siloed use of multiple tools; 40% of respondents use more than 10 risk management tools - Why a single source of truth based on automation and continuous business structure mapping, discovery of assets, security testing, and remediation planning is core to reducing risk

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.
