DISCLAIMER: I’m not working for Qualys, they are not related to this blog in any way and they definitely didn’t pay anything to be here. I’ll just be one of the Webcast attendees, and I strongly suggest you to do the same because the covered topics will be most likely worth of your time!

The planned date for the webcast is March 14 2018, 7:00 PM CET.

Here’s a short presentation depicting the Webinar topics & highlights, as taken from the Qualys official web site.

Introduction

The combination of today’s fast changing IT environments, increasingly common “headline” vulnerabilities and swift weaponizing of exploits requires a more automated, continuous and precise approach. Defense methods such as IT asset inventory, vulnerability management, threat prioritization, and patch deployment all must adapt with new speed and scale to deliver continuous visibility of global IT assets and environments for the realities facing today’s digital business.

Join Qualys along with featured guest speaker Josh Zelonis, Senior Analyst at Forrester, to discuss the practical realities of prioritization in the era of digital transformation, industrious attackers and headline vulnerability disclosures. How can security teams sort through thousands or millions of vulnerabilities in time to prioritize a subset of those, act appropriately, then report up the chain?

By attending this webcast, you will understand:

  • What this new era of branded vulnerabilities and rapid exploitation means for IT security teams already faced with increased scale and sprawl of cloud, hybrid, on-premises and containerized environments
  • How teams can streamline capabilities in order to simplify security with fewer staff resources
  • How to unify your approach to asset inventory, vulnerability management threat intelligence as vulnerability risk management
  • Why continuous visibility across global IT assets and environments is essential for automating security
