Vulnerability Management in the Cloud

Manage webcast
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.

Andrew Wild has more than 20 years of experience leading teams to design, implement and operate secure networks and computer systems. As Qualys' Chief Security Officer, Andrew oversees the security, risk management and compliance of its enterprise and SaaS environments.

Prior to joining Qualys, he managed a team of information security engineers responsible for the design, implementation and operation of security solutions for EMC's SaaS offerings, with heavy emphasis on cloud and virtualisation technologies. Prior to EMC, he was the Chief Security Officer at Transaction Network Services. He has also held a variety of network engineering leadership roles with large network service providers including BT and Sprint. Andrew has a master's degree in electrical engineering from George Washington University and a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the United States Military Academy. He is a veteran of the United States Army and served in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

  • Identity Access Management is a complex matrix of requirements meant to assure that only the right people have access to your data. This requires the creation of a rules, roles, and a method for preserving information about access rights. In other words, we create 'big data' that then must be mined to find the most risky individuals and risky behaviors. By starting with a risk-based approach, finding those behaviors and individuals is easier. Explore with us as we examine how risk values can be assigned as you build the database so that analyzing and reporting become easier.

  • Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) are one of the hottest new security technologies on the market. Recommended by Gartner, they provide visibility and control in a new IT world now based in public cloud applications and corporate data being accessed by employee BYOD devices.
  • As mitigating third party risk becomes an essential business function across many industries, business relationships will be tested. Organizations must now subscribe to a “trust, but verify” philosophy to ensure their third parties are secure. To verify vendor security, organizations now use BitSight Security Ratings, which are gathered externally and don’t rely on any vendor input.

    On August 27 at 1:00 pm EST join Debbie Umbach, Director of Product Marketing at BitSight as she discusses the best practices for implementing vendor security ratings. Viewers will learn:

    - different approaches for incorporating BitSight Security Ratings into vendor risk management (VRM) programs, whether your program is just getting started or is well underway
    - how companies have used BitSight Security Ratings to notify key vendors of security incidents
    - how vendor ratings can allow for more effective communication and thus greater transparency
