The BIG Cyber Security Skills Gap

Attackers will continue to be effective through an increase in sophistication, but they will also be successful due to the challenges organizations face in recruiting and retaining skilled cyber professionals.

During this webinar we will discuss the benefits and challenges of in-house vs. outsourcing of cyber security operations, and how this has been affected by a cyber-skills shortage within the industry with ‘on-demand’ resource being readily available when needed with real time insight and expertise of cyber breaches.

  • 5 Steps to Security Validation Recorded: Jun 15 2020 60 mins
    Major General Earl Matthews (USAF)
    Organizations have been managing security based on assumptions, hopes and best guesses for decades. We assume our technology will detect, block and send alerts, we hope our incident response techniques will be efficient and effective when under assault, and we believe that our security teams are well trained and practiced when everything goes wrong. These assumptions result in financial and operational inefficiencies, defensive regression and an inability to determine if we are investing in the right areas to communicate the state of our security effectiveness to stakeholders.

    Join this webinar to hear from Retired Major General Earl Matthews (USAF), as he discusses:

    • How to move beyond assumptions with automated and continuous security controls validation
    • Identify and measure vulnerability gaps
    • Manage and suggest remediation steps by arming security practitioners with meaningful evidence
    • Validate an organization's ability to defend itself by using real adversary behaviors
