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.
Quantify Your Cyber Exposure: Build Resilience and Defend Better
As organizations get inevitably pushed towards digital transformation, the attack surface is expanding exponentially, increasing the points of vulnerability. This is creating a cyber exposure gap that is being exploited by threat actors. In this new, digital-first landscape, organizations need a better way to manage, measure, and respond to cyber risk.
Practitioners need a reliable method to measure and model cyber risk, much like how other business functions approach risk. This can help organizations understand where they are exposed, what they need to address first, how their cyber exposure changes over time, and how they compare with peers – all aspects that can put the narrative back in the hands of security teams.
So how can your organization achieve this? How can understanding and quantifying your cyber exposure provide a tangible roadmap to building a robust security program, and providing cyber resilience? What is predictive prioritization, and how can it help contextually reduce cyber risk, most relevant to your business?
If you are looking for fresh insight on how tackle this problem, then join ISMG’s Varun Haran for this exclusive Executive Roundtable discussion which will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering insight on measuring and quantifying cyber risk and understanding exposure, including insights on:
- Defining cyber exposure and best practices for quantifying risk,
