Connecting Discovery With Context

In cybersecurity, just knowing what assets an organization has isn’t enough. That needs to be coupled with the context of how those assets relate back to the business. Curtis Simpson, CISO at Armis, discussed how this allows you to understand the risk those assets hold within the organization. This becomes especially critical as IT and OT systems have become intertwined.

Understanding the risk posed by assets allows security leaders to quickly make the business case for taking action. This shifts the conversation from CISOs talking about securing endpoints and assets, and allow them to talk directly about how a security threat directly ties to core business functions. Adding context to asset discovery makes it easier to bring security considerations into the everyday language of business.
