Tech Tip Thursday - Risk
Over the past few days I saw many vendors at #AFCEATechNet Asia-Pacific and I realized that every product and service they offer is built to address one thing. Risk. The generally accepted risk equation is “Risk = Threat x Vulnerability x Impact” and different products take on different factors. A vendor that provides “real time threat intelligence” is focused on threats. The “vulnerability assessment” tools focus on the vulns. Other focus on maintaining “uptime” with “resilient networks” to reduce impact. This SANS article identifies Risk as one of the “Five Tenets of Cyber Security” but for me it all comes down to risk. https://securingthehuman.sans.org/blog/2017/10/05/the-five-tenets-of-cyber-security/ If you have a Tech Tip you want to share, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get them out next #TechTipTuesday.
