Secure Configuration Management Demystified – SANS Webinar
To close the gap on attackers and make them less apt to succeed, the SANS 20 Critical Security Controls lists Secure Configuration for systems, servers and end points as a third critical control, and secure configuration for network and security devices as a tenth critical control.
Both controls recommend assessing, prioritizing and putting IT assets under a secure configuration management lifecycle. But what does that mean exactly, who’s responsible for lifecycle, and how can this be executed on a preventative scale without overwhelming the IT group and system users?
Learn from SANS’ configuration and virtualization expert, Dave Shackleford, about what secure configuration management is-and, as importantly, what it is not. In this interactive discussion, Dave and Tripwire’s Michael Thelander will take the pain out of security configuration management through:
- Prioritizing, discovering and then aligning your efforts to the business
- Secure hardening that’s flexible to system change requirements while managing work with automation; and then
- Applying it all over again to virtualized assets
We hope you can join us for an interesting discussion on August 28th. Attendees of this webcast will receive a complimentary white paper published by SANS on this same topic. You can register for this webcast here.
All the best,
