IT Hygiene and Vulnerability Management Work Together to Protect Remote Workforces


With so many organisations forced to rapidly move employees en masse to remote working environments, security teams face a critical challenge – how do we protect our workers from weaknesses in our systems? How can you tell if our accounts, assets and applications are safe? The loss of visibility and control of these systems and data could result in weakened defenses, which could lead to an opportunity for an attacker. As CIOs and CISOs grapple to understand the implications of incomplete and inaccurate data, cyber criminals are capitalising on human error and complacency, coupled with out-dated, non-compliant and exposed systems.

Join CrowdStrike Director of Product Marketing, Scott Taschler, as he addresses this challenge for security teams, discussing visibility, vulnerability assessment and management, and cyber hygiene. Scott will outline some of the specific challenges organisations like yours now face and share:

  • The vulnerability risks in working remotely
  • How to keep your VPN free, while still maintaining complete endpoint visibility
  • How to efficiently manage vulnerabilities on those hosts with critical detections
  • The identification of shadow/rogue applications
  • How to manage application usage

Webcast attendees will gain access to a free limited time offer trial of Falcon Discover and/or Falcon Spotlight, so make sure you register.
