Continuous Security Validation for Banking, Financial Services and Insurance

A Cloud Platform for Continuous Visibility, Measurement, and Governance

Enterprises are projected to spend an estimated $96 billion on security products and services in 2018. But will they have the empirical data to know if those investments actually reduce their exposure to threats? In our discussions with chief information security officers (CISOs), within the financial services industry, this lack of information is a recurring topic of concern.

Supporting this need for ongoing measurement, governments and regulators have produced a number of frameworks that apply to the financial services industry, including NIST, FFIEC, and GDPR (if conducting business in the European Union). All of these frameworks contain mandates for measuring and monitoring security controls. If you have not yet done so, now is the time to think about the resources you will need to implement a successful continuous monitoring program.

Anil Nandigam, Senior Director of Product Marketing with NSS Labs, will conduct a live demonstration of the Continuous Security Validation Platform. This cloud-based customizable platform provides real-time empirical data regarding the effectiveness of enterprise security controls and also reveals the operating systems and applications most often targeted by today’s active threats.
