Leveraging a Risk-Based Approach to Vulnerability Management to Unify Security and Operations
Wednesday, February 20, 2019
11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
Hear from security industry expert from Ovum on moving from silos to collaboration across security and IT teams.
For years organizations have leveraged traditional Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to define success in their Vulnerability Management programs. Unfortunately, this often pitts the security team, who drives the assignment of work, against the overloaded operations team, who performs the work, against one another. The transition to a risk-based approach offers many benefits including more effective communications, a shared understanding of priorities, and a unified sense of purpose. These benefits enable security and operations teams to truly work together to improve the effectiveness of your Vulnerability Management program.
What you will learn:
- What will replace KPIs and why
- How risk can be calculated beyond what your vulnerability scanners provide
- How to formalize a risk-based approach to vulnerability management with Key Risk Indicators (KRIs) as your foundation
- Why building workflows into your security and operations team processes reduces time, effort and results in building collaboration
