Vulnerability Management: It's All About Security

Presented by

Max Pruger GM VulScan

About this talk

When it comes to IT Security, a good offense may be your best defense. That means hardening your network to eliminate the vulnerabilities that are most likely to be exploited when you are attacked. If you’re responsible for managing the security for your own networks, you have exactly zero control over who decides to attack your network, what means and methods they employ, or what assets they target. Most cyber attacks are random, and can come at any time, and from any place: an open port on the firewall, a back-door through an unpatched application, a brute force attack on an administrative password. Internal and external vulnerability scanning is the tried and true way to harden any network from most cyber threats. The cybersecurity threat space is constantly changing, as is your IT environment. Attaching a dedicated vulnerability scanner on each network, and scheduling it to run at some regular interval is the best – and arguably only – way to maximize your IT security posture and reduce risk. Max Pruger will present some best practices and helpful tips that will guide you in the use of vulnerability scanning products, and how to get the most out of the scan results. You will also see a brief demo of VulScan, a simple, effective and affordable solution that is optimized for organizations that manage their own IT security.
