About this Webinar

Successful attack prevention strategies consist of a couple of factors that are very often not implemented properly in organizations. These are: identifying, classifying, remediating, and mitigating vulnerabilities. Quite often you can hear: “We do pen-tests once or twice a year! How can it be that we were hacked?!”. There could be several reasons why but one is there may be just too many devices with way too many patches and security updates to keep up with; applying patches and updates to every device on your network may not be entirely attainable. Other reasons include time, resources, and politics…the list goes on.

Whatever the reason, the basics of vulnerability management remain the same; the process must be well designed, tools easy to implement, and somebody must be directly responsible for its management. Some of the best strategies rely on experience.

Paula Januszkiewicz, in this BeyondTrust sponsored on-demand webinar, displays how to identify vulnerabilities, strengthen your systems, and STOP the data breaches that litter the news sites today. She will also demonstrate how to exploit systems and how (from the hacker perspective) this can be proactively mitigated!
