Visualizing Risk - Measure Twice, Act Once
The challenge every security pro faces each morning is "what to do first?" Big picture planning, threat detection, refining operations and automating compliance clamor for attention every day. How to be most effective? By consistently making fact-based decisions, based on operations data, that reflect your organization's priorities.
Mountains of data - configurations, change information, vulnerabilities, network traffic - is collected daily in your infrastructure. But security team lacks both methods and tools to visualize and assess this relentless flood. So taking action that feels right can raise your risk posture, compromise policy compliance and halt business operations.
This session will introduce the principles of fact-based network security and best practices for data-driven decisions. Then an overview of FireMon's new Risk Analyzer solution will be presented, including multiple use cases. Risk Analyzer provides the real-time visibility and analysis needed to take the most effective steps to reduce risk postures.
