Seven times to attack your attack surface

When should you think about keeping your cyberattack surface in good shape? Every day, just like exercise (“if only we had the time!”). If that’s not happening, take advantage of seven ideal times to take stock of your external risk—and drive your business forward.

Your digital footprint changes fast, and adversaries only need to find one attack vector, one time, to take you down. Grab this ebook to see how attack surface management (ASM) makes you stronger and healthier every day—just like exercise—but without all that time and effort.

 

Managing cybersecurity is like staying in shape

 

1. Try new tactics

As with fitness, we welcome new shortcuts—better, smarter, faster ways of getting the results we want. Attack surface management (ASM) could become the next keto of cybersecurity—something everyone tries because they keep hearing about it, and many adopt long-term because it works as advertised.

2. Maintain discipline

Keeping your digital attack surface in good shape takes constant vigilance to make sure you find and fix risks before you suffer mishaps. ASM involves discovering, assessing, prioritizing, and mitigating cyber risk—on a continuous basis—across critical areas such as brand exposures, vulnerabilities, and misconfigurations.

3. Persistence is key

You can't manage dynamic risk by assessing it at one point, any more than you could build muscle by working out once a month. Conducting pen testing and vulnerability scans on a somewhat regular basis is a good start but it isn’t enough. ASM offers a critical advantage with nonstop coverage, so nothing slips past you.

 

Justifying your security spend

When even one little thing slips by you, avoidable or not, havoc ensues, and everyone hears about it.

Actionable ASM plays an increasingly vital role in preventing that from happening, delivering fast, ongoing coverage and investment value.

Dashboards afford you an easy way to show a steadily shrinking attack surface, or that you’ve got things covered.

Demonstrate that you’re eliminating exposure—and work—as time goes on to avoid risk in the first place.

The more complex your security operations become, the more specialized tools (that don’t talk to each other) and types of intelligence you need to manage. As shown throughout this book, ASM needs to happen on a continuous basis because your attack surface changes on a continuous basis, often without you realizing it.
