How the shift to home-working impacted the challenge of vulnerability management
More than ever ‘remote’ systems are taking-over the frontline in the cybersecurity battle, and at the same time they are further beyond our control than we’ve ever been used to.
One area that all of this directly impacts is Vulnerability Management. Today it’s essential for businesses to shorten the patch cycles on key assets, including remote endpoints, cloud and VPN systems. VM programs have had to pivot from managing systems local to the enterprise network to encompass systems largely connected via the VPN or located somewhere in the cloud.
In this webinar we have gathered a group of experienced technical experts to discuss the impact and implications of this change and consider how businesses are adapting to face the new challenges it brings. We aim to have a frank conversation about how ‘real’ these changes are, and how this impacts security strategies. We’ll examine what we’ve observed amongst our own customers, what their experiences have been and what changes they’ve made to adapt to the new reality.
The webinar takes the form of an open, moderated conversation between diverse experts and researchers from our international team, combined with questions and audience polls to gather additional insights and perspectives.
