Session Information

Balancing Your Risk Through Passive Network Assessments
Wednesday, June 5, 2019 4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Data Breaches Will Happen… How You Respond Defines Your Company.
Insurance Companies are providing "Cyber Liability" coverage as a routine service these days. Are members a liability to carriers' accounts due to unknown vulnerabilities to their networks? Now picture your network's security posture in relation to your partners and clients. Are you a risk and liability to them? ...Are they to you? One of the services insurance carriers are beginning to provide their clients as part of their policy coverage is a "Passive Network Assessment (PNAs)". Insurance Carriers and Insurance POOLS can bring a LOT of value to their members through PNAs. Not everyone can afford full-scope Pentests; nor do they need them. PNA's demonstrate a LOT of value in a short period of time... gaining their trust along the way. Here's one way it can be done successfully and how you, as Information Security Professionals or Business Owners can leverage a slightly different security strategy to help yourselves in the fight against Cyber Crime. #PNAFTW!
