Description

What Happens in Vegas: Near Real-Time Vulnerability Visibility

Abstract:

Real-time visibility to vulnerabilities seems a hard puzzle to solve, especially when you have a huge address space of various 7/24 systems. Without it, balancing security remediation against non-stop gaming uptime is a difficult bet to place. The key to watching a continually changing set of hosts in the environment is having a strategy to complete deep scans within tight timelines. In this talk, the approach developed at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will present a flexible and automated approach to performing efficient vulnerability scans, detecting new hosts, determining when to add more scanning capacity, and reporting change as it happens. Come learn how one "revolving scan" strategy enables an immediate view to when patching efforts "move the needle".
