Defending the Unknown: New Approaches to Cybersecurity Asset Management

Presented by

Benjamin David

About this talk

The digital transformation has impacted the ability of security teams to detect and prevent cyber-attacks. The increased use of the hybrid cloud for enterprise workloads, SaaS applications and unmanaged endpoints has resulted in significant technology sprawl. To protect our environment, we first need to know what we must protect. Traditional approaches to IT asset management have not scaled to the modern cloud deployment, with the short-lived nature of many cloud services and the need to understand cyber-risk across a diverse environment of virtual machines, users, devices and applications. This session will look at new approaches to a foundational challenge: how asset management can be re-invented and made fit for purpose for cybersecurity use cases. Key takeaways: • Current approaches to asset management today and their limitations • The importance of measuring and understanding your attack surface • Building a relationship-based asset model to uncover cyber-risk • Common cyber asset management use cases
