"What’s your vulnerability assessment style? Are you scanning weekly, monthly or quarterly? And, what does your scanning habit reveal about the maturity of your organization’s vulnerability assessment practices, a critical part of cyber hygiene?
These are the key questions Tenable Research set out to answer in our Cyber Defender Strategies Report. We discovered four common vulnerability assessment strategies in use today. These strategies tell us how mature an organization’s vulnerability discovery process is – and help us identify ways to improve.

Cybercriminals can be goal-driven and patient, and they often have a singular focus, plenty of time and access to vast, modern technical resources. Both organized and forum-based criminals are working constantly to find innovative and efficient ways to steal information and money with the lowest risk to their personal freedom. If we wish to stay “one step ahead” of the threats detailed in this report, awareness of online criminal threats, techniques and markets is our best defense.
Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.
Despite long-standing concerns captured in a myriad of surveys, security in the cloud has progressed to a more practical and achievable level.
The cloud represents a shared security responsibility model whereby that responsibility is split between the Cloud Service Provider and the cloud customer. For organisations moving some or all of their applications and data to the cloud, acceptance of this model clears the way to more thoughtful consideration for how security can and should be architected — from the ground up. As a result, IT and IT Security leaders now have a much clearer trajectory to support their business operations in the cloud in a secure manner.
Finding a strategic partnership with a trusted security expert that can assist you in all the aspects of information security is vital. SecureWorks is a market leader in security that can close the security gap in organisations by evaluating security maturity across an enterprise, help define security strategies and implement and manage security program plans. We are a true strategic partner that can help a CISO embed security at all levels of the organisation.
The SecureWorks Security and Risk Consulting practice provides expertise and analysis to help you enhance your security posture, reduce your risk, facilitate compliance and improve your operational efficiency.
Technical Tests are designed to cover specific services. Each security test has its own objectives and acceptable levels of risk. There is not an individual technique that provides a comprehensive picture of an organisation’s security when executed alone. A qualified third party can work with you to determine what combination of techniques you should use to evaluate your security posture and controls to begin to determine where you may be vulnerable.
GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.
Attack Surface Manager (ASM) gives security teams unprecedented power to easily implement a cyber hygiene program to harden their networks against malicious lateral movement of cyberattackers. This paper provides an overview of common ways that Illusive's customers are using Attack Surface Manager, including fortifying PAM/PIM solutions, detecting insider threats and malicious insider activity, and providing powerful, automated Red Team functions.
Do you know how attackers can move once they’re inside your network? The access footprint changes constantly as users log on and off, restart systems, change roles, and access resources. Until now, these conditions have only been visible when skilled analysts inspect individual systems. Attack Surface Manager reveals hidden credentials and paths to critical systems so you can continuously impede attacker movement—without impeding the business.

UW-Superior’s IT team was looking to replace their outdated intrusion prevention system. After a full evaluation of AlienVault’s Unified Security Management™ (USM) platform, they decided to leverage it to meet their IDS needs. As the team became familiar with using AlienVault USM as their intrusion detection system, they began to implement the other tools that make up the USM platform. They realized that because so many security features were already included in USM, like behavioral monitoring, SIEM and vulnerability assessment, they would not have to purchase additional security tools that they previously thought they would need.
