"The root cause of the problem is increasing threat vectors, in addition to the different aspects of digital aspects that are coming in - from the traditional IT assets to the nontraditional IT assets," he says.

  • Assessing the cybersecurity exposure gap;
  • Why predictive prioritization is relevant;
  • Vulnerability management vs. vulnerability assessment.
