WHERE: Moscone West, Room 2014

Qualys Track Sessions During RSA Conference 2015, April 20-24:

WHAT: Bridging the Divide Between Security and Operations Teams
WHEN: Tuesday, April 21, 2015, 1:10-2:00 pm PT
WHERE: Moscone North, Room 130
WHO: Jonathan Trull, Chief Information Security Officer, Qualys

Organizational Security and IT Operations teams (SecOps) have traditionally been siloed functions, making it difficult to quickly identify and respond to potential vulnerabilities and attacks. This presentation will discuss the SecOps gap and highlight the importance of bridging these two functions, to ultimately strengthen the overall security and compliance posture against potential attacks.

WHAT: Getting a Jump on Hackers
WHEN: Tuesday, April 21, 2015, 2:20-3:10 pm PT
WHERE: Moscone West, Room 2018
WHO: Wolfgang Kandek, Chief Technical Officer, Qualys

A successful security program is one where network perimeters are defined. Hackers constantly probe perimeters using automated tools to exploit any vulnerabilities. This session will discuss why it is necessary to continuously audit your perimeter, and provide best practices for mitigating risks in the same way hackers perpetually attempt to breakthrough.
