ISMG’s Virtual 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, Virtual Roundtables give cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to discuss threats and controls with a handful of market leaders in an informal and online 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.
Master Your Attack Surface and Reduce Digital Risk
Scott Ferguson – Executive Editor, ISMG / Rob Gurzeev – CEO & Co-Founder, CyCognito
Whether it’s a digital transformation initiative or ensuring that employees can work from home and remote offices during the COVID-19 pandemic, an organization’s attack surface continues to grow and become more complex every day.
With this increasing complexity comes risk because attackers now have many more avenues to gain a foothold within an organization’s network.
Organizations also require more visibility into their networks to keep track of an increasing number of assets, some of which are intended to be externally accessible and some of which are not. Without insight into assets and their accessibility, misconfigurations and vulnerabilities can leave the infrastructure open to attack.
What can organizations do to increase the visibility into their attack surface? What are the risks of not knowing where all the assets are within a network? How can organizations better protect themselves from attackers taking advantage of the security shortfalls of third-party partners?
Please join ISMG’s Scott Ferguson for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how to better defend the attack surface.
Discussion topics will include:
- How has your organization’s attack surface morphed in the last few months?
- What are some of the best ways to defend your attack surface and reduce risk?
- How can organizations gain greater visibility into all the assets that are part of their extended IT ecosystem?
Joining Scott to provide expert insight and case studies is Rob Gurzeev, CEO and Co-Founder of CyCognito.
