- Gerhard Eschelbeck, CTO of Qualys, will unveil new research at Black Hat as a significant addition to his well-known "Laws of Vulnerabilities." The new findings will update key trends in vulnerability half-life, prevalence, persistence and exploitation. It will also focus on the growing threat from security vulnerabilities discovered within an organization's network, rather than solely at the perimeter. In addition, Eschelbeck will name the top 10 most prevalent and critical security vulnerabilities impacting today's networks.
- Security vulnerabilities are discovered and published daily. With each announcement, the same questions arise: How significant is this vulnerability? How prevalent is this vulnerability? How easy is this vulnerability to exploit? Eschelbeck's research provides a unique analysis of global vulnerability data that helps predict trends, identify threats and focus remediation efforts.
