Today's security testing techniques, including perimeter vulnerability scanning, pen testing, managed security services and red teaming, are only as effective as their scope and frequency. More often than not, security pros wait to be notified or alerted to a problem, rather than being proactive. Given the number, criticality and potential damage of attacks, how can you better protect your organization against the very latest threats? 'And with so many solutions in your arsenal, how can you ensure that security controls are integrated seamlessly to defend you in the moment of truth against attacks?

In this webcast, SANS senior instructor Matt Bromiley and Cymulate's Eyal Aharoni will discuss issues with security effectiveness testing and how to improve control validation to shorten testing cycles, accelerate remediation and improve your organization's security posture--faster. How can you automate the process of challenging your security controls and measuring their performance? How can you simulate attacks? And what specific steps will help you optimize security in a more proactive, continuous way?
