What’s Next in Vulnerability Management?

Jeremy D. Briglia
Regional Sales Manager
Qualys
Biography

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.

Biography

Entering cybersecurity and growing a successful career in a male-dominated industry has always presented unique challenges to women. When the world stayed home in 2020, these challenges developed an interesting spin. In-person networking events stopped, enterprise security programs required massive changes, and the separation between work and home life disappeared as workforces became remote and distributed. Likewise, the forward momentum women were experiencing regarding representation in the global cybersecurity workforce stalled, primarily because we are struggling to locate new talent since no one can meet or interview in person. Luckily, the cybersecurity industry has proven to be resilient during this time, with more positions needing to be filled than ever—and women security leaders have much-needed insight to offer about how we can overcome all these challenges today and continue growing as an industry to build a better tomorrow.

Regeneron’s “COVID-19 Cybersecurity – Protect the Patient” program was initiated to protect against cyberthreats that could potentially disrupt COIVD-19 research, clinical trials and drug manufacturing operations. Regeneron’s investigational COVID-19 antibody cocktail thrust the company into the epicenter of a global pandemic. This heightened visibility increased hostile nation-state threats to Regeneron’s IT operations and employees were bombarded with COVID-19 social engineering attacks. Join us as we learn how Regeneron Pharmaceuticals pivoted to a multifaceted program to increase public-private collaboration on cyber threat intelligence, improve the cybersecurity posture to protect a newly remote workforce and secure the COVID-19 value chain, and strengthen our vendor engagements and technology supply chain.
