Tripwire to Host Webcast on Anticipating High-Impact Vulnerability Threats

Security leader to provide practical advice on protecting against next Heartbleed, Shellshock

PORTLAND, Ore. — March 3, 2015 Tripwire, Inc., a global provider of advanced threat, security and compliance solutions, today announced a new webcast titled “Are You Prepared for the Next High Impact Vulnerability?” The webcast will take place at 11 a.m. PST on Thursday, March 12, 2015.

Heartbleed, a major OpenSSL vulnerability, shocked the security world when it was disclosed in April 2014. Joseph Steinberg, a cybersecurity expert and contributor to Forbes, called Heartbleed: “... a serious vulnerability. Some might argue that it is the worst vulnerability found (at least in terms of its potential impact) since commercial traffic began to flow on the Internet.” Many industry professionals thought Heartbleed was a rare occurrence, but additional high-impact vulnerabilities such as Shellshock and POODLE emerged as the year progressed.

Ken Westin, senior security analyst for Tripwire, will share risk mitigation and incident response strategies that can help organizations prepare for the next high-profile vulnerability.

Webcast attendees will learn:

  • Immediate steps to take that minimize risk and exposure for any new high-impact vulnerability.
  • How a rapid response plan can reduce detection time for new vulnerabilities on traditional operating systems, networking and security devices.
  • Key steps that allow organizations to quickly identify potentially exploited systems as well as contain and remediate specific threats.
