The Modern Security Battlefield: What 2020 Taught us about Gaps in Vulnerability Management

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs



ICIT Virtual Briefing | The Modern Security Battlefield


While 2020 was fraught with tragic outcomes of social and economic proportions, security teams have learned many lessons on resilience and have orchestrated many technical innovations to secure a distributed workforce. An expanded attack surface, sophisticated breaches like the SolarWinds attack and a pressing need to improve operational efficiency, has reframed digital transformation priorities. One mechanism for addressing this challenge is investing in automation tools. Investing in automation tools simplifies remediation, provides a competitive edge, and improves security. But are these tools primed and ready to deliver the CISO with quick time to value, a comprehensive risk remediation plan to present to the Board and assurance that the organization will maintain a mature vulnerability and risk management program to avert increasing attacks?


In this interactive panel discussion ICIT and SME's will focus on the gaps that COVID 19 uncovered in current vulnerability management techniques and why the combination of trustworthy security policy management and closed loop vulnerability remediation will become the new citadel for securing complex large enterprise networks. Join us to learn the importance of integrating automation into full lifecycle vulnerability management:


  • Scoping your efforts to target vulnerabilities that matter
  • Using the ‘ex-factor’ of exposure and exploitability data to focus remediation efforts
  • Creating a cohesive web between existing security products to automate and deliver remediation from discovery to resolution
  • Developing a mature and tightly connected security framework that enables the reduction of risk and improves security capabilities
