The business was unaware of any change and risk; hence Francesco pioneered the automated correlation of application and risk and FAIR modelling to quantify cybersecurity risk.

Also, Francesco has pioneered a methodology to derive ownership of code to the cloud to raise security incidents better and reduce manual labour and 

Francesco has authored several publications from network security, cloud security whitepapers, and application security community whitepaper.

From our Blog

Contextual vulnerability management is a comprehensive approach to identifying, analyzing, and mitigating vulnerabilities in software and cloud infrastructure. It involves considering the specific context and environment in which vulnerabilities exist, including the software and hardware components, the network infrastructure, and the organizational policies and processes in place. By adopting this approach, organizations can more effectively assess and mitigate the risks posed by vulnerabilities, helping to protect their assets and maintain the security of their systems and networks.
