Convergence: Configurations, Vulnerabilities and Unexpected Changes - Brian Cusack Louisville InfoSec 2013 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Convergence: Configurations, Vulnerabilities and Unexpected Changes - Brian Cusack
Louisville InfoSec 2013

Hundreds of security controls work constantly to provide millions of security-centric data points. This presentation discusses how three of these controls – three that are happen to be easy to obtain, manage and scale – can be combined to offer a continuous view of overall security posture. Mapping the combined perspectives to business-centric notions of risk and relevance make them even more powerful, and provide an actionable, risk-based measure of current security that can “move the security needle.” This presentation will discuss the benefits of this convergence, how it comes about, and what the future may hold for security practitioners who pursue it.
