It does this by using the PERT’s exclusive Cybersecurity “Principle” and the SEC’s cybersecurity guidance.
Container adoption is skyrocketing, and so are concerns around securing container-based applications. While the market is still in its early phase of embracing this technology, lessons learned from securing Fortune 500 enterprise deployments against simple and sophisticated attacks alike are showing the path forward. Join us on an investigative journey as we explore popular attack vectors that have been used to breach container-based environments, provide best practices and tools to mitigate them, and discuss associated business risks.
In today’s interconnected technology ecosystem, companies increasingly rely on third-party vendors to meet their operational needs. However, the current state of vendor risk management (VRM) is bleak. More than half of all information security breaches are caused by third-party vendors, and according to Deloitte, 83% of today’s business leaders lack confidence in third-party VRM processes. Understanding and managing cyber risk posed by vendors, suppliers, and third parties has proven to be a difficult task. The right mix of people, processes, and technology result in the most effective and comprehensive program.
Of course, this cannot be further from the truth: ensuring security and safety of industrial control systems has always been the most important job for OT experts. However, after decades of dealing with unique technologies and regulations and with a traditionally strong focus on human and process safety, securing IT assets was by far not their top priority. As industrial networks are becoming increasingly complex, geographically dispersed and interconnected, however, both impact and probability of numerous cybersecurity risks are growing, and the biggest challenge for CISOs nowadays is no longer how to persuade OT people to take notice, but how to evaluate a vast number of potential threats and to prioritize the actions needed to protect their networks.
