Award-Winning Blogger and Cybersecurity Veteran to Speak on Speedy Identification of Exploit Paths and Social Media in the Security Community
Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in Unified Security Monitoring (USM), announced today that Jack Daniel, award-winning blogger and product manager for Tenable Network Security, will be speaking at two informative sessions at this year's Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit.
Daniel's first presentation, Easy Exploit Path Identification, will demonstrate how enterprises with large and diverse networks can quickly and easily identify exploitable weaknesses on Internet-facing systems using active and passive vulnerability analysis and continuous network monitoring.
"The security landscape is undergoing a significant change – moving from point-in-time risk awareness to real-time risk assessment," Daniel said. "Continuous monitoring combined with real-time network intelligence is key to prioritizing known vulnerabilities – and if you're not prioritizing, you're wasting valuable time and leaving yourself open to emerging, high-priority attacks."
Easy Exploit Path Identification will take place on Monday, June 11 at 2 P.M. ET, at Showfloor Theater B.
Additionally, Daniel will be featured alongside several top security analysts and reporters for the event's Security Journalists and Bloggers Panel. The panel will discuss the impact that traditional and social media has on communication in the security community, the perspective of investigative media on information security, and strategies for leveraging social media effectively in the security industry.
The panel will be moderated by Greg Young, research VP at Gartner. Daniel will joined by Eric Alhm, research director at Gartner; Kelly Jackson Higgins, senior editor at Dark Reading; Joseph Menn, technology reporter at Thompson Reuters; and Jennifer Leggio, VP of corporate communications at Sourcefire.
"Social media has strengthened the security community by making it easier to connect with others and share data faster, but it's a double-edged sword," Daniel said. "The privacy and security concerns surrounding general social media usage in the enterprise are real, and both security professionals and employees need to be aware of the risks and cautious about how they are using social networks."
The Security Journalists and Bloggers Panel will take place on Wednesday, June 13 at 8:30 A.M. ET at the Potomac Ballroom C.
