ISMG’s Executive Roundtables focus on specific challenges being faced by information security executives in today’s cybersecurity landscape. Moderated by one of ISMG’s Executive Editors and a guest industry expert, Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal setting, from which you will emerge with new ideas and solutions you can immediately put to work to improve your own organization’s defensive posture.
Risk Ranking Re-Evaluated: Bringing Analytics and Automation to Vulnerability Assessment
Application vulnerabilities, connected devices, cyber criminals and nation-state actors: They all represent serious risks to your organization – and they are hardly alone.
But it’s one thing to recognize a risk. It’s quite another to assess the threat actors, the likelihood of a cybersecurity incident and then the potential impact to your organization or even to your industry.
How can analytics and automation improve the efficiency of risk-ranking vulnerabilities? How can this data then be translated and presented best to the business for acceptance? How can you work more effectively with your peers to improve information sharing and collaboration?
If you’re looking for new answers to these questions, then join Tom Field for an exclusive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on their strategies to bring analytics and automation to risk-ranking of vulnerabilities.
Discussion topics will include:
- How do you currently approach risk-ranking – where are your gaps?
- How do you use data from your risk-ranking exercises to inform business leaders and the board?
- How do you use this data to make better, faster decisions about incident response and business continuity?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Scott King, Senior Director, Security Advisory Services for Rapid7.
