SOAPA Video with Kenna Security (Part 2)

In part 2 of the video with Kenna Security, CEO Karim Toubba continued to explain why and how vulnerability and risk management have a fundamental place within a security operations and analytics platform architecture (SOAPA). Our discussion focused on:

  • The cybersecurity skills shortage. Anyone who's read my blogs knows this is a frequent topic of mine as I believe the cybersecurity skills shortage represents an existential risk to all our online safety. Karim agrees that it’s a problem and believes we need to apply compute cycles and artificial intelligence algorithms to process, analyze, and act upon the growing mountain of security data.

SOAPA Video with Kenna Security (Part 1)

Karim Toubba, CEO of Kenna Security, stopped by the ESG studio to discuss SOAPA and its application to vulnerability management. In part 1 of our video, Karim and I discuss:

  1. The problem with vulnerability management. Vulnerability management is one of the most mature categories of cybersecurity technology so I pressed Karim on why it applies to a new architecture like SOAPA. His response was intriguing – the issue is sorting through all the data as enterprises are dealing with millions of vulnerabilities across a full technology stack from host systems to applications to cloud workloads. SOAPA and new types of data analytics can help organizations process and manage the data, making it more useful for decision making.
