Risk Exposure Reduction

Become optimally prepared against unpredictable threats and strategically reduce your organization's attack surface

Managing an ever-growing multitude of vulnerabilities is a huge undertaking for any organization. If it seems like there’s always a new critical CVE being exposed or a new emergency patch being released, that’s because it’s indeed the case. Many organizations try in vain to tackle each issue as it arises but this approach isn’t sustainable, and more importantly, it fails to address the full scope of exposures that can compromise an organization’s security level.

Issues like misconfigurations, excessive permissions, and credential misuse can have a profound impact on security but most approaches to vulnerability management don’t even look at these things. To truly understand what’s happening in your hybrid environment, addressing the full scope of possible exposures with context and prioritization is the only sustainable option.

Who is this course for?

Any cybersecurity professional who’s looking to enhance their knowledge around exposure management.

Why should I get certified in exposure management?

The Exposure management course is a great way to get the knowledge needed to improve your understanding of the types of exposures that put your organization at risk. You’ll learn how exposures chain together and allow attackers to reach critical assets and you’ll come out with a full view of the security exposure ecosystem.  You’ll also learn how exposure management and how it fits into the modern information security program and describe and recognize the phases of exposure management, how it differs from vulnerability management, and explain how it relates to on-premise, hybrid, and cloud IT environments. 

How do I get certified? 

Just click "Start Today" and fill out the short form. You’ll then get an email with your login information and you can start the course. If you complete all the course work and a grade of 80 and above on the assessment, you’ll get the certificate and badge.
