Managing principal at Vigilant Inc, J.B. O’Kane, Ph.D., to present on strategies for communicating application security risk and value at next week’s Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) 2012 Annual Meeting, taking place Dec. 9-12, in San Francisco
Jersey City, NJ (I-Newswire) December 4, 2012 - WHAT: Vigilant, Inc., a provider of managed security monitoring services and threat intelligence services, today announced that its managing principal, J.B. O’Kane, Ph.D., will be presenting on strategies for communicating application security risk and value at next week’s Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) 2012 Annual Meeting, taking place Dec. 9-12, in San Francisco.
While malicious behavior is a risk long associated with online business transactions, today’s web-facing applications are new targets due to the high value of data that passes through them. To properly secure online commerce and protect information, application security monitoring (ASM) is emerging as apriority for information security teams. The advent of ASM also brings risk-mitigation value to an entirely new set of stakeholders unfamiliar with most security issues, including application owners, developers and support teams. Information security teams are challenged with communicating the types of security risks that applications may be vulnerable to and the risk-control tactics that need to be put in place to avoid them.
Drawing on lessons learned from the many ASM projects he has worked on, O’Kane will outline the communication pitfalls that information security teams should avoid when working with new stakeholders. He will also share proven approaches that can be used to improve the communication of ASM value across the enterprise.
WHO: O’Kane is widely regarded as a leading authority on IT risk management and is one of the industry’s leading advocates for enterprise ASM adoption. A former director of IT risk management at UBS, O’Kane brings valuable first-hand knowledge of enterprise risk to his role as managing principal at Vigilant. O’Kane received his doctorate in criminal justice from Rutgers University.
