Hacker Hour: The Rise of the vCISO

The term vCISO (virtual chief information security officer) is a relatively new term being used in the cyber world, but the outsourcing solution itself is rather mature. The vCISO solution has been touted as an innovative way to help close the cybersecurity talent gap for organizations, but it's important to know that not all vCISO programs are created equal.


Join SBS as we discuss why the vCISO is on the rise and discover the pros and cons of considering this model for your organization in the future.

Hacker Hour: The Importance of Patch Management
 

Most organizations rely on vendors that frequently develop and issue patches to correct bugs, improve performance, or enhance the security of their software. While organizations are looking to identify and protect against any identified vulnerabilities, cyber criminals are racing to exploit them before any patches are launched. 

According to the Ponemon Institute, 57% of cyber attack victims say an available patch could have prevented their breach. Even further, 34% of respondents were already aware of the vulnerability before they were attacked.  

Join SBS as we discuss the importance of patch management, what is holding organizations back from timely patching, and what you can do to help your organization improve its patch management program.
