The Security Debt Crisis – How to Catch Up on Past Due Patches and Neglected Risk
(Interview hosted between Nick Holland, ISMG, and Dave Lewis, Duo Security)
Scott Ferguson – Executive Editor, ISMG / Dave Lewis – Global Advisory CISO, Duo Security at Cisco
There is a common theme for many of the mega breaches of recent years – a neglect of basic cybersecurity hygiene that has resulted in a backlog of unpatched apps, misapplied configurations and overlooked tasks. This debt compounds over time and, as with financial debt can snowball to reach a point, where it becomes insurmountable. As organizations become increasingly cloud first, the risk profile from security debt further increases.
So, what can be done to claw back control of security debt? How can organizations build a culture where security debt isn’t allowed to be neglected or passed on to others? How can systematic and repeatable processes alleviate the problem? And, where do begin this process?
Please join ISMG’s Scott Ferguson for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on best practices on eliminating their security debt.
Discussion topics will include:
- What level of security debt are you currently dealing with? High ground, treading water, sinking, or Marianas Trench?
- What are the biggest reasons for developing security debt and how can these be addressed?
- What systems and processes can I put in place to dig myself out of this debt and prevent it from recurring?
Joining Scott to provide expert insight and case studies is Dave Lewis, Global Advisory CISO of Duo Security at Cisco.
