Jonathan Risto Presenting: Managing vulnerabilities in the enterprise and an Overview of the PIACT Process

Our networks have problems. We know that. There are vulnerabilities all around us. New ones appear daily and at times it seems faster than we can fix the existing problems. Join us for a brief overview of the Prepare, Identify, Assess, Communicate and Treat (PIACT) vulnerability management process. The goal of the presentation is to give an insight into the process and information taken from a new SANS management course coming this year on vulnerability management for the enterprise and cloud services.

Kenton Smith Presenting: Frameworks: What Are They Good For?

How using frameworks like NIST CSF and the CIS 20 Critical Controls can help you to define, communicate, and measure your security program.
