Building Attacker Resistance: Ethical Hackers Help Determine Realistic Security Scores

However, while hacker-powered programs hand off a lot of vulnerabilities to security teams, there hasn’t been a clear idea of the amount of coverage or the level of risk reduction that comes with the testing,” says Jay Kaplan CEO and Co-Founder of Synack.

The overall increase includes even larger cyber funding spikes at key agencies, including a 23 percent jump at the Energy Department, a 33 percent jump at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and a 16 percent hike at the Veterans Affairs Department.

Inkling Collaboration Launches at NRF 2018: Retail’s BIG Show
