About this talk

Earn 1.5 CPE credits on this webinar The corporate attack surface is rapidly expanding: how can security professionals get ahead of the curve and create resilient organizations? Recent events suggest that easily-exploitable vulnerabilities are all too common, and they’re not limited to the technologies we commonly consider; Internet of things (IoT) devices could represent the next great risk to the enterprise, not to mention third-party supply chain partners. The challenge is growing more serious each day. BitSight recently announced the discovery of critical vulnerabilities in a popular IoT device – a vehicle GPS tracker – potentially allowing hackers to track vehicles, remotely disable corporate fleets, and more. Explore media coverage on this research in The Associated Press, Bloomberg, and TechCrunch. How can security professionals ensure that their organizations are taking advantage of the benefits of technologies without unintentionally creating new risk? In this conversation, you will gain insight into: ● The latest BitSight research into IoT device security. ● Factors contributing to the expanding attack surface. ● New government recommendations for supply chain risk. ● Strategies for continuous monitoring. ● Advice for security professionals on managing IoT and supply chain risk. Speakers: ● Richard A. Clarke, National Security Expert and Chairman of Good Harbor Security Risk Management ● Pedro Umbelino, Principal Security Researcher, BitSight ● Stephen Boyer, Co-Founder, BitSight ● Jake Olcott, VP Gov.
