How Penetration Testing Reduces Risk
Tuesday, July 28 | 10:00 a.m. CT
Though cybersecurity defenses are increasingly sophisticated, threat actors have also become more creative in order to achieve their end goals. They continue to find new ways to use the technologies most integral to businesses – mobile devices, computers, servers, websites, wifi, and email – as entry points to breach networks for malicious purposes. What more can be done to reduce the risk of attack?
Watch cybersecurity expert Bob Erdman, Senior Product Manager, review the different levels of penetration testing. Pros and cons of each level are discussed, including tools used, how to use the results, false positives, and more.
Learn how different techniques of ethical hackers are used and the steps needed to reduce risk through penetration testing, including:
- Scoping strategies
- Incorporating vulnerability scans
- Post-test remediation measures
8 Ways to Tackle the Biggest Access-Related Information Security Challenges in Financial Services
Financial services organizations today face extraordinary challenges in a dynamic, complex landscape. During the last two decades, the financial services sector has seen everything from increasing cybersecurity threats, data breaches, and cyberattacks to intensified regulatory compliance, an acceleration of digital transformation, and the pressure to increase operational efficiencies and decrease overall costs.
Addressing these issues, while staying focused on delivering high-quality customer service, means financial institutions must continually do more with less. That’s where Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) and Privileged Access Management (PAM) comes in—enabling organizations to intelligently and efficiently manage who has access to what systems and when, and deliver the most efficient path to mitigating identity risk.
Join us for our upcoming webinar, tailored specifically for financial services organizations looking to tackle their biggest information security challenges. Featuring Mike Lynch, Senior Sales Engineer at Core Security, a HelpSystems Company, this insightful webinar will examine:
- Key issues and trends within the financial industry related to identity governance and privileged access management

How to Take Your Vulnerability Management Program to the Next Level
Thursday, August 20 | 10:00 a.m. CT
Managing security vulnerabilities is no easy task: identifying, classifying, remediating, and mitigating weaknesses in the IT infrastructure is a continuous process that has only grown more challenging with an increasing number of attacks. Most organizations have the fundamentals in place: running regular vulnerability scans, establishing basic prioritization methods, having a patching process, and maybe even having some metrics. But after building a foundation, what’s the best way to ensure your vulnerability management program continues to mature?
In this live webinar, cybersecurity experts Bob Erdman and James Adams of Core Security and Randall Laudermilk of Carson & Saint will discuss how pen testing can help you take the next step. Valuable new insights can be gained through penetration tests that augment vulnerability scanners for enhanced prioritization or validating remediation efforts. Learn how even running a few key tests can improve your security posture, and the best way to incorporate pen testing to your existing vulnerability management program.
