The Future of Cyber Defense: Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM)

Sponsored by: Hive Pro
Presented by: Zaira Pirzada, Vice President of Product Marketing, Hive Pro

Cyber adversaries are intensifying their attacks, employing greater volumes and sophistication. In response, cyber defenders need a forward-looking strategy that empowers them to outmaneuver these threats and enhance cyber resilience. The traditional approach of playing catch-up in this cat-and-mouse game results in diagnostic fatigue, escalated costs, and inefficient risk management. Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) offers a solution, providing a proactive and comprehensive framework to effectively manage and mitigate cyber risks. This session will explore the inception of CTEM, highlighting how it advances beyond conventional attack surface and vulnerability management by integrating threat intelligence, risk prioritization algorithms, breach and attack simulation, and improved exposure visibility. CTEM is poised to revolutionize cybersecurity strategies, shifting the focus from reactive measures to proactive, strategic defense against evolving cyber challenges.
