At our recent webinar, co-hosted with our partner Grey Matter, we discussed some of the common myths and pentesting misconceptions that we've heard from across the industry. Not all penetration tests are created equal, but they can and should be your secret weapon in your IT or security toolbox, and our panel shared their advice for choosing services and vendors that provide real value and meaningful change.
For the next interview in our series, we really enjoyed catching up with Matthew Bryant who shared his thoughts on how the role of the CISO has changed over the last 20 years, top tips for managing budgetary pressures, and advice for those currently on their journey to security leadership.
In today’s world, cyber attacks are becoming increasingly common and sophisticated, making it essential for businesses to take necessary measures to protect their assets. There are many different approaches that a company can take to evaluate their security posture and protect themselves against cyber threats, and two of the most common approaches are security assessments and penetration tests. While both are critical components of a comprehensive security program within an organisation, the two terms are often used interchangeably despite the fact there are significant differences between them. But what is the difference between them?
How can we build better relationships with the board and convince them of the value of their cyber security investment? Security leaders now have a seat at the table, and with that comes a demand for CISOs to demonstrate not just technical and leadership skills, but be able to relate security back to the overall business goals and risk profile.
