Join the BCS Kent branch for this interactive discussion.


Vulnerability management programmes are an important tool to help defend your digital environment and reduce risks. In this talk, Jonathan will discuss what a vulnerability management programme is, why you should implement one, and how vulnerability scanning differs from a penetration test.

We will discuss the available tools for running your own vulnerability management programme and show the results of some scans. Jonathan will share anecdotal examples of where he's been involved in vulnerability management programmes in a number of environments, providing real world examples. This talk will be accessible to all skill levels.
