Are you feeling overwhelmed by the vulnerabilities reports you receive from your team? You're not alone. The increased complexity of our deployed software and networks has amplified the potential locations where vulnerabilities can be found, and thats not including our processes and people. Attackers are taking advantage of multi vectors into our organization. Our push to the cloud has increased the demands, as everything is provisioned instantly and ready for use, according to all the marketing material we receive. Being able to stay on top of, and quickly remediate, the priority issues identified in our environments takes a team larger than we are allocated, besides what we can keep staffed.

Enter SANS new class, MGT516: Managing Security Vulnerabilities: Enterprise and Cloud.

The primary goal of this course is to equip those responsible for managing the infrastructure and application vulnerabilities with strategies and solutions that overcome the challenges and stumbling blocks they may encounter. By understanding the problem and potential solutions, participants will be better prepared to meet this challenge and determine what might work for their organization.

In this webcast, we will give an overview of the MGT516 class and give a sneak peek into some of the material. By the end of this talk, you will have a good understanding of the main topics covered in the course, as well as who should attend the class.
