Beware the shiny penny: ensure your existing security investments are paying dividends

“I have 1,000 critical vulnerabilities but can only fix 100 this month – which 100 do I prioritize?” This is a common question senior security executives ask on a regular basis.

The good news is, businesses are taking steps to protect themselves by implementing new security technologies. The bad news is, they’re finding themselves with too many tools, and not enough experts, to manage them.

We know misconfiguration of cyber security tools can be blamed for some of the world’s largest data breaches. Without continuously monitoring cyber security hygiene, systems are left vulnerable to risk and non-compliance. In fact, through 2023, Gartner predicts that 99% of firewall breaches will be caused by firewall misconfigurations, not firewall flaws. If this is true for firewalls, what about the other tools you have implemented and are accountable for?

At RSA 2019 it was discussed that 80% of security issues can be solved with cyber hygiene. Rather than chasing the tail of the latest technology, it offers greater visibility of your applications while ensuring compliance with security frameworks and regulations.

Therefore, it’s apparent continuous monitoring and maintenance of your security standpoint shouldn’t be a ‘nice to have’.

Join Merlin and a group of security leaders for an intimate, interactive, peer-to-peer conversation focused on how to improve cyber hygiene, fully leverage the functionality of your security tools and gain accurate metrics through better visibility into your environment.

Discussion Topics

Cyber hygiene: why does it matter to your organization?
Optimize performance: how can you make the most of your existing security tools?
Accurate data: how are you measuring and reporting metrics back to key stakeholders?
