HITS Fall: Edgescan COO to Talk Vulnerability Landscape


One of the basic tenants of a security function for any media and entertainment organization is vulnerability management, figuring out your risk exposure.

But what may sound simple on paper can be a daunting task in 2019, considering the increasing frequency of data breaches, and the way you approached vulnerability management in the past may not cut it with today’s technology stack and development methodologies.

That’s the message Rahim Jina, COO and co-founder of vulnerability management solutions firm edgescan will bring to attendees of the HITS Fall event Oct. 3 in Los Angeles, in the breakout session “Vulnerability Landscape 2019 – Hocus Pocus Refocus.”

“In addition to the abstract, the presentation will focus on some of the key results and stats that have come out in relation to our vulnerability stats report for 2019, an analysis of all vulnerabilities found during all of 2018,” Jina said. “Then I will pick through some of the common themes and pitfalls.”

Using real-life vulnerability data, Jina will look at some of the common themes that persist today, and share some vulnerability management actions you can take. By refocusing on more rudimentary elements, your cyber team could see marked improvements in your company’s overall security posture.
