Quantifying Unknown Cyber Risks

20 Nov 2019, 10:00 - 10:50

Track 6: Industry Trends & Insights

In Expanse's research, we see that most organizations have cyber assets they aren't aware of, and because they aren't aware of them, these assets increase the risk to the organization. Compounding that risk is the fact that many of these unknown assets lack the benefits of the security controls and protections that the known assets benefit from (e.g. updated software,  proper configurations and even basic security monitoring). So how do you calculate the risk associated with an asset you aren't even aware of? During this session, we will discuss the impact of these unknowns on your organization's risk, and propose a way to factor them into your calculations.

After completing this session you will be able to: 

  • How unknown assets proliferate, and therefore your risk increases
  • How to factor this risk of unknowns into your assessment of your cyber posture
  • Processes and tools organizations can use to discover and thereby reduce the risk of unknown assets
