Name: Cut Through Vulnerability Noise with Runtime Insights

Date/time: Thursday, October 5, 2023, 1:45 PM - 2:30 PM Pacific Time


Shift-left security has a noise problem. Developers working with pre-release scanning tools find themselves drowning in a deluge of scanner output. Finding vulnerabilities is never a problem. Determining if a risk must be addressed is the real challenge. Successful vulnerability management and supply chain security require teams to prioritize issues based on the actual risk to their organization. Criteria such as vulnerability severity and exploitability are important filters, but fixing issues that aren’t actually used to run your application is not a good use of time, nor does it necessarily make you more secure. In this talk, we’ll discuss how runtime insights can provide a lens into risk by identifying the packages actually loaded in memory at runtime. You’ll learn how filtering based on what is in use and therefore exploitable helps prioritize where to focus, reducing vulnerability noise up to 95%. Join us to hear best practices for vulnerability management and remediation. Attendees will gain an understanding of how to analyze Docker images, generate a corresponding software bill of materials (SBOM) and correlate an image inventory with a vulnerability database to identify common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) in your images. In addition, you’ll see how Sysdig Secure and Docker Scout are used together to prioritize issues using runtime context and improve container security from source to run.
