Session Topic:
10:00 - 10:45
Data Acquisition with Tenable.io

Tenable.io offers several approaches to security data acquisition, including active scanning, passive monitoring, and locally hosted agents. We will discuss different approaches to data acquisition, the advantages and challenges of each, and data integration into Tenable.io.

SecurityCenter Advanced Scanning Techniques

SecurityCenter can perform scans that do not interfere with your IT infrastructure. We will discuss creating scan blackout windows, scans that chain together in sequence to avoid excessive bandwidth utilization, importing partial scan results, and handling incomplete scans. We will also talk about configuration of scan zones and repositories to efficiently scan geographically diverse deployments.

11:00 - 11:45
Tenable.io Asset Categorization

With Tenable.io, you can organize computing infrastructure into meaningful groups for scanning, analysis and visibility of data. We will discuss Tenable.io’s unique approach to asset identification, the benefits of that approach, and how to group assets for scanning, analysis, and permissions.

SecurityCenter Scan Policy Tuning

SecurityCenter provides the capability of performing scans that acquire security data beyond a typical credentialed scan. We will discuss how to maximize scan performance, fine- tune discovery, adjust for low bandwidth and scan fragile environments.

12:00 - 12:45
Tenable.io Cloud Security

In the modern IT environment, acquiring security data on cloud services can be challenging. We will discuss the challenges in securing cloud assets and how to gather and scan data from various cloud environments.

SecurityCenter Custom Reporting

SecurityCenter’s reporting features include the ability to generate complex reports with data organized in some new and useful ways. We will discuss how to perform Host-by-Host security data reporting, how to generate warning indicator dashboards and alerts and how to measure Key Performance Indicators in your infrastructure with Assurance Report Cards.

12:45 - 13:30
13:30 - 14:15
Tenable.io Web Application Scanning

Tenable.io provides automatic scanning of your web infrastructure for vulnerabilities commonly exploited in web applications. We will discuss how to use Tenable.io’s layered approach to web application scanning to identify vulnerabilities in your web infrastructure.

Policy and Compliance Auditing with SecurityCenter

Every organization has security policies, hardening practices, and standardized configurations that can be verified through running compliance scans. Also considerations are audit requirements like PCI, HIPAA, NIST 800-53, or ISO 27000. We will discuss how to perform compliance scanning, how to evaluate the results, and tips to make these scans work effectively.

14:30 - 15:15
Tenable.io Container Security

Many organizations utilize pre-configured host images for rapid deployment. We will discuss how Tenable.io can scan container images for vulnerabilities prior to their deployment in a live environment.

Managing Agents with SecurityCenter

Nessus Agents are the best way to manage devices for a mobile workforce, scanning while offline, and reporting the results when the device is available on the network. Importing those results into SecurityCenter puts all vulnerabilities in a central location for the most meaningful analysis. We will discuss how to set up agent scans using either Nessus Manager or Tenable.io, import those results into SecurityCenter, and manage that data.

15:30 - 16:15
Industrial Security

One of Tenable’s newest offerings, Industrial Security provides the capability to passively monitor network activity and thus identify assets and vulnerabilities in Industrial Control Systems (ICS) networks.

Complementing SecurityCenter with Tenable.io

Tenable.io adds to your existing SecurityCenter solution in several significant ways - visibility of cloud assets, agent management, PCI ASV, container security and more. We will discuss leveraging Tenable.io’s unique capabilities to support your cyber security program. Additionally, you will learn how to set up Tenable.io within SecurityCenter in order to scan cloud-facing assets, and import Agent scan results.

Data Science - Leveraging Machine Learning for effective vulnerability prioritisation

Tenable has invested heavily in data science to effectively harvest and utilise the vast amounts of data generated on the platform. In combination with relevant third party data and powered by artificial intelligence we have enormous potential to solve some of the biggest challenges in cyber security faced by our customers. In this talk I am going to focus on Tenable's risk driven prioritisation strategy. We will propose Tenable's new vulnerability score (TVS), that is an adaptation of CVSS to incorporate a machine learning derived threat score. The threat score dynamically responds to the changing threat landscape. We will highlight the advantages TVS has over CVSS in terms of vastly more efficient prioritisation and its overall responsiveness to changing threat levels.

Research - Zero Day hunting and plugin creation

In this talk, Tom Parsons will provide an overview of the Tenable Research team. Tenable Research is a global cyber security team most strongly associated with plug-in development driving most of Tenable’s product such as Nessus, SC and Tenable.io but also made news this year with the discovery of the Peekaboo vulnerability, a major flaw in global surveillance software. The team consists of many exceptional researchers and focuses on key issues affecting how organizations defend themselves. This session will give a broad overview of the diverse work the team is doing to address the full scope of vulnerability management from asset coverage, to plug-in development, primary research and discovering zero-days. For example in 2018, Tenable Research has discovered and disclosed 30 vulnerabilities and published three whitepapers based on real-world defender behavior. The work by Tenable Research is instrumental in the effort to reduce the Cyber Exposure Gap, this session will explore how that work is accomplished.

Closing the Cyber Exposure gap with automation and orchestration

Major data breaches are headline news, but those well-publicized breaches are only the tip of the iceberg. To better understand why large-scale breaches continue to occur, ServiceNow surveyed more than 2,900 security professionals involved in vulnerability response. This survey uncovered that manual processes are slowing security teams down and putting their organisations at risk. Learn how you can close the cyber exposure gap by combining Tenable and ServiceNow to make identification, prioritisation, and patching of vulnerabilities more efficient with workflows and automation.

Research - Vulnerability trends and insights

Leveraging anonymized telemetry data, Tenable Research has conducted and published three major studies this year. The research is quantitative and data-driven, providing real-world insights into how cyber defenders are actually behaving. Oliver will walk through the findings of each report:

  • Quantifying the Attacker’s First-Mover Advantage: Comparing the time it takes for enterprises to assess for a vulnerability versus the time attacker’s need to obtain a working exploit
  • Cyber Defender Strategies: Looking at enterprise vulnerability discovery and assessment maturity – and the four maturity styles organizations display
  • Vulnerability Intelligence: Showcasing the latest trends in vulnerability disclosures – and the most prevalent vulnerabilities in enterprise environments – the ones representing a truly global risk

Upcoming report (will be announced on November 7).

The Complete Vulnerability Management Approach
Session Abstract

The presenter will address the complete vulnerability management approach needed to run a successful security department and thus diminish the risk of Cyber Exposure. Understanding your environment through live discovery methods such as scanning, a good asset management program based on best-of-breed security practices and partnering with the IT department are all essential to maintaining a strong awareness of your environment. Having a good understanding of your assets within the attack surface is crucial and priority remediation on critical security infrastructure is needed to maintain a safe environment. Continuous visibility is imperative, but so is strategic insight and the validation of success through effective security metrics, reporting and open communication with the senior management and risk management teams. Security is complicated, but with knowledge and understanding of the complete vulnerability management approach, you can reduce the risk of cyber attacks.

Ramin Lamei - Sr. Director, Information Security Officer | Tenable
