Andrew Wild, Chief Security Officer, Qualys
Vulnerability management is a key component of a strong information security program. And that's making sure that with everything you're doing – in the cloud, on the desktop, browsers and server environments – you can reduce the vulnerabilities so that no matter what threats are out there, they are less likely to be successful. While vulnerability management is well understood, virtualisation and cloud computing bring about sweeping changes to many areas including vulnerability management. This webcast will provide insight and solutions for effective vulnerability management in the cloud.
