Perth Breakfast Meeting - May 29

Perth Day Month: Meeting Name
Join us for breakfast from 7:30am - 9:30am at EY with guest speaker Bede Hackney from Tenable


Topic: Vulnerability management, clarifying how to prioritise vulnerabilities

What are the top vulnerabilities found in the enterprise? Too many “critical” vulnerabilities to triage? You’re not alone. Our research shows that enterprises must triage more than 100 critical vulnerabilities a day. So, how do you know where to focus?

  • To start, we will show you how cyber defenders are actually acting
  • See why ‘Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is an inadequate prioritisation metric – and why you must prioritise vulnerabilities based on actual risk
  • Discover vulnerability trends in the ever-expanding attack surface
  • Learn whether your organisation has one of the most common vulnerabilities (some are more than a decade old!)
  • We will take you through an analysis of vulnerability prevalence in the wild, highlighting the cyber threats that security practitioners are dealing with in practice – not just in theory.
