Presentation Summary: Log4j is The Warning Growl, Listen!
Log4j is the warning growl of a very scary big dog. As scary as growls are think about how many dog bites there would be if dogs didn’t growl. Log4j is your Cyber Security Program’s warning growl, listen to it, change, and avoid getting bit.
- Listening to the growl to adapt and avoid getting bit
- Assume breach, now what?
- Zero Trust will save you but maybe not in time
- The important executive conversation
- -Software vulnerabilities are a deep, complex, and legacy problem. Events such as Log4j will be a reoccurring problem for a long time in the future. Patching is hard.
- - The risk numbers are guesses
- The most important slide for the board: Preparedness
