Transform Cybersecurity With Proactive Exposure ManagementTenable's Sudeep Das on Implementing a Threat Exposure Management Program
Gartner predicts that by 2026 organizations that prioritize security investments through continuous exposure management will be three times less exposed to the risk of a breach. This approach enables a shift from reactive to proactive cybersecurity, with exposure management forming its foundation.
Sudeep Das, head security engineer for India and the SAARC region at Tenable, underscored the importance of treating threat exposure management as an ongoing process rather than a one-time event.
"CISOs should implement a continuous threat exposure management program that consists of three key phases," Das said. "The first phase involves establishing visibility across digital assets, followed by identifying critical assets through prioritization and, finally, communicating relevant information, such as actionable items, remediation measures and exposure metrics."
In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at ISMG's Dynamic CISO Excellence Awards and Conference, Das discusses:
- How threat exposure management can help strengthen cybersecurity posture;
- The need for continuous exposure management;
- The three phases of a CTEM program.
Das is a cloud and security technical expert with more than 25 years of security industry experience. He has worked on managing comprehensive security programs and led teams on managing vulnerabilities across IT, OT, web and Active Directory. Das previously led presales at IBM Security in India and South Asia, and he managed the presales at RSA.
