Panel: Vulnerability, Exploitability and Decision threes from appsec to cloudsec


Vulnerability management and exploitability from code to cloud: we have a fantastic panel on the 20th of October with views across the world and industry, EPSS creator Jay Jacobs, Chris Madden from yahoo with one of the implementation of ssvc, Marius Poskus raising cybersecurity CISO star and John Kinsella-Mike Shema deep appsec connoisseurs and hosts of the application security podcast

Panel: What is modern vulnerability and why a data-driven approach appsec vs infrastructure/cloud

What is more exploitable, what is exploitation in the wild, what data-driven approach is more effective and risk-based vs decision

The panel will focus on exploits at scale, and how to reduce vulnerability management burnout.
