Being a former insurance professional, the talk will discuss how coverage works and what types of breaches can be covered with no sales spin. Further, the session will also discuss how cyber insurance is being integrated into risk management plans.

Everyone has a product security problem but the problem is bigger than they think. In the security industry, too many organizations including security vendors are relying on bad data which forces them to be reactive and unable to prioritize critical issues.

In 2018 alone, there were more than 22,000 new vulnerabilities disclosed and while nearly everyone relies on the CVE/NVD, it is missing nearly 70,000 vulnerabilities with 45.5% of those having a CVSSv2 score between 7 and 10. This session will provide the solution to this problem as well as additional practices that would benefit any organization to manage and prioritize risk mitigation.
