Forbes Magazine estimates that global information security spending now exceeds $100 billion annually, yet we are witnessing high-profile breaches and losses from cyberattacks on a near-constant basis. The fact is this: hackers are dedicated and patient. All it takes is one weak point in your security measures for them to access your system, so what are you going to do after they have breached your perimeter? To prepare for this inevitability, enterprise security teams will need to view their network the way hackers see it and pinpoint all existing, hidden vectors of attack. That includes incorporating a robust Identity Management and Authentication strategy to pinpoint who is accessing enterprise systems and how—no matter the circumstances. Overnight, enterprises shifted to having their workforce operate remotely, meaning there was little time to create roles and identities while ensuring everyone had access to their work. Most business continuity plans were not broad enough to anticipate that everyone would be displaced at the same time, and security teams struggle with knowing if their prior strategy for managing and authenticating identities is picking up the slack. Who is seeing what, and what data is being exposed? Join our conversation as we discuss how to view your network like a hacker does to locate vulnerabilities as well as assess how effective our identity management strategy and business continuity plans have proven in the face of the inevitable and the unexpected.
Attendees of the ISE® Cocktails and Conversations will earn 1 CPE upon its conclusion.

What’s Next in Vulnerability Management?
Enterprises have long struggled with getting their traditional endpoint solutions to interface well with each other. Vulnerabilities continue to increase in number and severity, leaving security and IT teams with unidentified devices, misclassified assets, an overabundance of alerts and overlooked system patches. Though an important global resource for organizations, the Internet also exposes company networks to cybercriminals who attempt to crack networks, steal proprietary information, plant malware onto computers and more. Even new computers get tested by attackers within minutes of connecting to the Internet and, if left unsecured, fall victim to attacks within 24 hours. To obtain cohesion with our enterprise solutions and protect our most crucial assets, future Vulnerability Management processes must provide true, risk-based prioritization of threats and unify the entire vulnerability workflow—from discovery to remediation. Join our conversation as we discuss the need for prioritization and how to speed response and remediation for the most critical vulnerabilities.
