Presented by

About this talk

It’s that time of year again: RSA Conference 2017 is upon us. The trends in the security industry are moving more quickly than ever, and the newest methods of preventing cyberattacks have quickly shifted away from solely building walls of defense and into analytics of the data gathered about your network and the way users and attackers use it. But what about the tried and true methods for thwarting hackers like traditional Vulnerability Management programs? Many organizations have allowed their VM programs to languish and become ineffective because it’s often seen as too old of a technology and too difficult to make successful. But that’s only because they’ve really never done it right. Join Nathan Wenzler, Principal Security Architect at AsTech Consulting, to learn why Vulnerability Management is still a critically key component to a successful security program. This discussion will highlight: - The issues that lead companies to ignore their VM programs - Real-world examples and case studies of solutions you can use to resurrect one of the best tools in your security arsenal About the Presenter: Nathan Wenzler is the Principal Security Architect at AsTech Consulting, a leading information security consulting firm.
