RiskSense and Ovum to Present Webinar on Harmonizing Vulnerability Management across Security and IT Operations Teams

Experts will Explain how Risk-based Model Can Eliminate Traditional
Collaboration Silos

SUNNYVALE , Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/AppSec?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#AppSeclt;/agt;–RiskSense®, Inc., pioneering
risk-based vulnerability prioritization and management, today announced
that Senior Solutions Manager, Jason Farmer and Maxine Holt, Research
Director at Ovum will present a webinar on how to unify vulnerability
management functions across security and IT operations teams to reduce
risk from unmitigated and weaponized cyber threats.

WHO:

  Jason Farmer, Senior Solutions Manager at RiskSense, is an expert in
cybersecurity risk management, privacy, and compliance. He has held
senior engineering positions at leading security vendors including
Arbor Networks, the security division of NetScout, RSA Security,
Promisec, NetIQ, RedSeal and McAfee. Jason works directly with
organizations to help them implement a security technology stack
that will optimize their security posture within the confines of
their available resources and expertise.
 

Maxine Holt, Research Director at UK based analyst firm Ovum,
leads the firm’s security business. She was previously Principal
Analyst at the Information Security Forum (ISF),
a London based non-profit and leading global authority on cyber
security and risk management. At ISF, Maxine provided research and
guidance on protecting mission-critical information assets and
collaboration platforms.

 

WHAT:

Many organizations use Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure
the effectiveness of their vulnerability management programs. This
approach often pits security teams against over burdened IT
operations staff, discourages cross-team collaboration and reduces
the efficiency of vulnerability management efforts. This webinar
will explain the benefits of replacing KPIs in vulnerability
management with a risk-based approach that aligns operations and
security team functions. Maxine and Jason will explain how risk can
be calculated using additional metrics beyond what vulnerability
scanners provide, the benefits of replacing KPIs with Key Risk
Indicators (KRIs) and the advantages of building workflows to break
down silos between security and operations teams.

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
