The Expanding Attack Surface

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Smarter threat and vulnerability management for organizations embracing the public cloud, mobile, and DevOps.

Organizations of all sizes, from all sectors, must come to terms with growing numbers of reachable and exploitable vulnerabilities. Embracing the public cloud, mobile, and DevOps leads to an expanding attack surface that challenges our existing approaches to managing threats and vulnerabilities.

What you'll learn:

  • How the attack surface is expanding and challenging your current InfoSec practices
  • Does a growing attack surface change the way we view threats
  • Ideas for strengthening vulnerability and threat management
  • Answers to your questions during live Q&A
