Tenable Network Security Founder and CEO Ron Gula will discuss “Good and Bad Uses of Vulnerability Data.” Gula will also address how vulnerability data is often used to better qualify security events from network intrusion detection systems (NIDS) as well as security event managers (SEMs). However, there are subtle issues with how correlation can be implemented that incorrectly modified the severity of a detected security event. This talk will allow security operations analysts to make better use of their security event and vulnerability data. It will consider variations on the type of active vulnerability scans that can be performed, how frequent they should be performed and passive network monitoring to discover vulnerabilities in real time.
Gula is one of the leading experts in the fields of network and data security. He began his career while working at the National Security Agency conducting penetration tests of government networks and performing advanced vulnerability research. Prior to founding Tenable, Gula authored the original Dragon Intrusion Detection System.
