A zero-day threat is a vulnerability that becomes known to the vendor on the same day it becomes known to the public, meaning IT assets targeted by a zero-day threat won't have a patch available when it's needed. However, zero-day attacks operate in a realm of the probable - they work only because there are exploitable vulnerabilities within IT systems. Many of these can, and should be prevented. This guide describes why organizations are vulnerable to zero-day attacks, and what you can do to add a zero-day offense to your existing vulnerability management processes to protect your organization's assets and data.

It’s not easy being today’s CISO or CIO. With the advent of cloud computing, Shadow IT, and mobility, the risk surface area for enterprises has increased dramatically, while IT budgets have shrunk and skilled cyber security talent is virtually impossible to find. Thankfully, the CIS Top 20 Critical Controls provides a pragmatic approach, offering prioritized guidance on the important steps for implementing basic cyber hygiene practices. With the CIS Top 20 Critical Security Controls, CISOs now have a blueprint for reducing risk and managing compliance. By automating each of these controls, CISOs enable their information security teams to do much more with less, essentially operationalizing good cyber hygiene.

Continuous Monitoring has become an overused and overhyped term in security circles, driven by US Government mandate (now called Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation). But that doesn’t change the fact that monitoring needs to be a cornerstone of your security program, within the context of a risk-based paradigm. This paper from Securosis discusses Continuous Security Monitoring, including how to do it, and the most applicable use cases they have seen in the real world. It also provides a step-by-step guide for things to do for each use case to move forward with a monitoring initiative.
