Meeting on March 11, 2016 – Open Meeting

Running a Threat Based Vulnerability Management Program

Security organizations have no problem finding vulnerabilities on enterprise networks – the volume of security data is constantly growing. The greater challenge is sifting through this data to determine which of these vulnerabilities pose the greatest risk to the business, and prioritizing remediation efforts. Using available threat data and performing attack path analysis enables a strategic, threat-based approach to vulnerability management and remediation.

InfraGard is an information sharing and analysis effort serving the interests and combining the knowledge base of a wide range of members. At its most basic level, InfraGard is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the private sector. InfraGard is an association of businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, and other participants dedicated to sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the United States.

The Toledo Members Alliance is comprised of professionals from various size companies of all industries. We hold regular meetings to discuss issues, threats and other matters that impact their companies. Speakers from public and private agencies and the law enforcement communities are invited. It is our goal to improve and extend information sharing between private industry and the government. InfraGard members gain access to information that enables them to protect their assets and in turn give information to government that facilitates its responsibilities to prevent and address terrorism and other crimes. Attend a local chapter meeting, meet FBI officials from your area and help protect your nation’s infrastructure.
