Cyber Exposure: Essential Visibility into the Modern Attack Surface

The attack surface for today’s IT landscape is a far cry from the past. Once focused on protecting traditional data centers, cybersecurity professionals are increasingly guarding a complex litany of modern assets like cloud instances, web-based applications, mobile devices, application containers and more. Failure to appropriately manage the unique characteristics of these technologies as a whole can jeopardize the entire risk management program. Join our session to learn how CISOs can reduce their risk and close their overall cyber exposure gap resulting from today’s challenging attack surfaces.
